On Friday, the people of Florida’s Gulf Coast were reminded of the power of heroism when a resident saved three people from a capsized houseboat.

Travis Brady and his friends had gone out fishing on the opening day of red snapper season but found themselves turning back due to stormy conditions. On their way back to the marina, they spotted a houseboat that had broken free from its moorings and was in danger of capsizing.

When they arrived at the scene, another boat was already there—its owner, Boyd Jordan, was attempting to rescue three people trapped inside. Without hesitation, he jumped into the water and smashed through a window to help them out before their vessel sank.

The heroic efforts didn’t stop there: Brady and his team threw Jordan a life jacket with a line attached so he could be hauled aboard their already overcrowded boat. They then guided all four individuals safely ashore onto a sandbar where they walked away without injury or damage to either boat—a truly miraculous escape!

This incident serves as an inspiring reminder of what can be achieved when we come together in times of need. It also demonstrates how even one small act of bravery can quickly become amplified when combined with the courage and selflessness shown by others in our community. We are proud to share stories like this that show how our citizens embody these values every day!
