VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE HEROISM OF RYAN SHERWOOD AND QUENTIN CADE IN THEIR COURAGEOUS RESCUE OF A TEEN VICTIM OF A HIGHWAY COLLISION IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY.
Whereas, on March 17, 2011, two brothers were travelling through Spartanburg when their vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer truck. One of these brothers, Paul DeKroon, was thrown from the vehicle upon impact and became pinned beneath it; and
Whereas, Quentin Cade and Ryan Sherwood, employees of a nearby restaurant, became aware of the accident and quickly abandoned their own safety to give assistance; and
Whereas, upon reaching the scene, they raised the vehicle from Paul DeKroon and held it suspended until emergency services personnel arrived approximately ten minutes later; and
Whereas, Mr. DeKroon suffered a broken neck and ankle, and he faces a long recovery, but his doctors are confident he will recover in time; and
Whereas, but for the selfless actions of Ryan Sherwood and Quentin Cade, Paul DeKroon might have sustained graver injuries or lost his life; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the heroism of Quentin Cade and Ryan Sherwood and are pleased to learn of plans by their employer, Subway Restaurant, the DeKroon family, and the South Carolina Department of Highway Patrol to honor these heroes. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the heroism of Ryan Sherwood and Quentin Cade in their courageous rescue of a teen victim of a highway collision in Spartanburg County.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Quentin Cade and Ryan Sherwood.
