Auburn University sophomore Daniel Brinson, a Montgomery native, was honored Monday, March 3, by U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers in Samford Hall. Rogers presented Brinson with a framed page from the Congressional Record that he presented Jan. 22 to the U.S. House of Representatives. Rogers honored Brinson for his September 2007 rescue of a woman from a burning car near Greenville on I-65. Brinson was traveling with a friend, Terrell Webb, when the pair came upon an accident. Both cars involved were in flames off the side of the roadway, so Brinson and Webb forced their way into one of the cars and pulled one of the occupants, a young woman, away from danger. The young woman has since overcome serious injuries to make a full recovery.
