Multiple Sources including Connecticut State Police:


Connecticut State Police have identified a good Samaritan who they said

rescued a man from a burning vehicle in Stamford earlier this month.


Troopers posted to social media a photo of the man, whom they said was a tow truck driver.


In less than 24 hours, state police announced they had identified the man and thanked the public for their assistance.


Late Tuesday night, they said they were able to identify him. However, he wished to remain anonymous.


They said he rescued the driver on Sept. 4 around 5:25 a.m. The burning vehicle was on Interstate 95 at exit 9.


While we understand admirable desire to remain anonymous as true hero's often do.


One must wonder if he be willing to be recognized and accept the industries Hero Award.
