A Bridgeport man was honored Saturday for helping to save the life of a 3-year-old boy who got stuck in an electric car window.
Emmus Crawford, 44, was singled out in a ceremony at Seaside Park Saturday morning.
Police say Crawford, using nothing but his elbow, broke out a window that was accidentally rolled up onto the child's neck.
The family of Lucas Bello says his heart stopped for 4 minutes and he ended up in a coma for 24 hours but miraculously made a full recovery.
Crawford says, "He was turning red, he started foaming at the mouth, his eyes was going in the back of his head so at that point, I was like, I don't think 911 is going to make it, so I just broke the window."
The boy's family called Crawford, "a great man with a great heart – and a fantastic elbow!"
