Boys honored after saving grandfather following crash

ALEXANDRIA - Two young boys were honored during a special ceremony Saturday, 3 months after their heroic efforts saved their grandfather, officials said.

Friends, family and first responders came together Saturday as the two brothers were officially named Junior Firefighters.

Carter Temple, 5, and Cameron Temple, 8, were in a serious crash with their grandfather in December. The pickup truck they were driving in failed to negotiate a turn and the truck hit a guardrail, sending it 40 ft. into the air, officials said.

The boys managed to climb through the back window of the truck, cross a stream and knock on a door at a nearby home.

The homeowner called 911 and officials were able to extricate the man from the truck.

Officials said if the boys didn't act as bravely and quickly as they did, their grandfather may have not survived.
