Trenton man who saved baby during storm will be recognized – The News Herald


Trenton Mayor Steven Rzeppa said he read a story in the News-Herald about a stranger rushing to help a mother frantically trying to hold on to her 3-month-old daughter during a storm.

At the time, the man was not identified and the mayor remembers thinking how remarkable the situation was and could not imagine what the mother must have felt when the stranger grabbed her daughter, who did not was not strapped into a car seat pulled by the wind.

Within days, a follow-up story was published identifying the man as Curtis Murphy, and when Rzeppa found out he was a new resident of Trenton he said he was absolutely delighted.

The mayor began to think that the city should do something for him.

City officials follow through on this idea and publicly honor the Good Samaritan who quickly became the hero of the hometown of Trenton.

The mayor said Murphy will receive a certificate of appreciation at the Sept. 20, 7 p.m. meeting of Trenton City Council.
