VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - Two Virginia Beach teens were honored Tuesday evening for their heroic efforts with the Virginia Beach Life Savers award.
Sixteen-year-old Adam Belcher and 15-year-old James Bracy were body boarding at the Oceanfront in August when they saw a man and his two small children struggling in a rip current.
The teens rushed over to the family and pulled them to safety.
"I feel like a hero," Bracy said. "It was all in God's timing that we were out there. It was all last second."
"It's definitely something to talk about in the future when I get older and say, 'Hey, guess what me and a close friend did when we were at the beach?'," Belcher said.
Some local families who lost a loved one during active duty military service boarded a special flight out of Norfolk Thursday morning.
Thousands of EMTs and paramedics checked their bank accounts Thursday for one last scheduled payment from the company that suddenly laid them off, but found nothing.
