Michael Smith is congratulated by Limerick Police Sgt. Patrick Roache during a ceremony presenting his hero award outside 7-11 in Royersford.
Heroes come in all shapes, sizes and ages and sometimes you don't know there's a hero within until its time to act.
That's what Michael Smith found out on Thursday, May 20.
At about 1 p.m. he saw two 3-year-old girls run out into the street at the intersection of Washington and South Lewis roads in Royersford.
He pulled them to safety before they could be run over by passing vehicles at the busy intersection.
Recently, he was honored for that act of heroism with awards from both the Spring-Ford school police, as well as by 7-Eleven for "going the extra mile.
Congratulations to Mr. Smith and we applaud his heroism.
