STRATFORD - A Stratford man who saved a man who had driven his car into the water is now being considered for a national award.

Peter Procyk is one of 20 finalists for the Citizen Service Above Self Honors given by the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation.

Procyk is being considered for his actions a year ago when he pulled Robert Hoodes to safety after the 79-year-old man had gone into the water.

The winner will be announced March 22.
