        A RESOLUTION honoring Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey.
    

    Whereas, On January 17, 2007, Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey, without concern for their own safety, rescued 89-year-old Alberta Wimsett;

    Whereas, Alberta Wimsett had driven her car into an area of high water and became stranded;

    Whereas, When the members of the rescue team arrived on the scene, they quickly realized that they would need a boat for the rescue;

    Whereas, Because the Cayuga Volunteer Fire Department

does not own a boat, Benji Brink quickly retrieved his own boat;

    Whereas, Upon arriving at the car, Shawn Haworth got into the back seat of the car and unlocked the doors;

    Whereas, Once the doors were open, Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey helped the woman into the boat and transported her back to safety; and

    Whereas, It is fitting that we recognize Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey for their brave and heroic actions in rescuing an elderly woman: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:


    SECTION 1. That the Indiana House of Representatives recognizes the bravery displayed by Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey in rescuing someone in danger without regard for their own safety. These outstanding men help to ensure the safety of their community for the people who reside there.
    SECTION 2. That the Principal Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a copy of this resolution to Benji Brink, Shawn Haworth, and David Bailey and their families and Tim Wilson, chief of the Cayuga Volunteer Fire Department.
