‘Heroes of the Heartland’ to be Honored by American Red Cross
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The American Red Cross will honor four Iowans later this month as Heroes of the Heartland. Among those being honored is a fisherman who saved 10 people on Lake Red Rock last year. Nate Thayer of Martensdale was fishing on June 15th when he spotted a group of people struggling in the water. Nate began pulling people out of the water, including an eight-year-old girl whose life he saved after performing CPR on her.
