The Macomb Police Department honored three WIU Students on February 26th, 2014 for their life saving actions. On February 7th, 2014 just after 2:20am students John Ganta, Daniel Comyn and Alexander Flisk were walking home when they found an incoherent, shivering, shoe-less female curled up in the fetal position in the 100 block of E. Adams. With temperatures below freezing and near zero the three assessed the situation and took action. The three men moved the female to a local open business and called 911 for help. For their assistance to the young woman which undoubtedly saved her from further harm and further tragedy, the three men were presented a Citizens Award of Appreciation.
