The Huber Heights Police Department joined the community to honor a man who saved a boy’s life earlier this year.

On Feb. 5, Spencer Fisher was near the lake at Carriage Hill MetroPark when he heard someone screaming, according to a social media post from the Huber Heights Police Department.

Fisher went there to see a young boy had fallen through the ice. Fisher ran to the boy and pulled him out of the lake.
