Minneapolis officials Monday honored a city work crew for their rescue work. On hand were Council Member Sandy Colvin Roy, crew foreman Scott Bagley, crew members Kenneth Jones, Mike Levitt, Ted Miller and Keith Stritesky, and Council Member Kevin Reich.

A crew from the Minneapolis Department of Public Works was recognized by the City Council for members’ rescue work last August.

The crew had been working near Broadway and Second Street when a rainstorm hit the area, trapping a car, with people inside, in 4 feet of water under a railroad bridge.

The workers called 911 and then waded in with the police officers and helped break the car windows to rescue those trapped inside.  They also worked to clean out the catch basin allowing the water to drain.

Crew members included foreman Scott Bagley, James Gill, Kenneth Jones, Mike Levitt, Ted Miller, Richard Schwerke and Keith Stritesky.
