Hero: Thy name is Greg Williams


The word is used so much it loses its meaning --- a man admired for his achievements, noble qualities and courage.

Greg Williams defines that description.

He's the Bradenton man, who rescued 6-year-old Victor Rodriguez  at their apartment complex pool on Sunday.
Reportedly, the little boy had eaten then jumped into the pool and was in danger of drowning.

That's when Williams, an unemployed meat-cutter, bolted from his apartment to assist another man who'd pulled the boy from the pool.

Williams performed CPR, then dislodged food from the boy's windpipe and saved his life.

Victor is recuperating at All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg and on Monday he called Williams to thank him.

"I started crying like a school girl," the 47-year-old  said.

There is a saying, "A man never stands so tall as when he kneels to help a child. "
Such a  man stands even taller when saves one.
He is truly a hero.
