BRIDGMAN — A man who narrowly escaped drowning last month after his vehicle landed upside down in a flooded ditch got a chance Tuesday to meet and thank his rescuers.
“You kept me calm through the whole thing. I can’t thank you enough. I’m very thankful, I was so scared,” Ron Weaver of Baroda told Lake Township Fire Captain Mike Essig, Lincoln Township Police Officer Ryan Venno and Berrien County Public Safety Dispatcher Melissa Hensley. They received life saving awards Tuesday from Baroda-Lake Township Police Chief Shawn Martin.
