Thanks for Giving Heroes (Names E-H)

Heroism is around us every day and it deserves to be celebrated! We're saying "thank you" to men and women who have done extraordinary things -- see why these folks are an inspiration to us all!

Joseph Fraschilla & Johnny Goings -- Staten Island, NY & Brooklyn, NY

When Hurricane Sandy hit last year, MTA veterans Johnny and Joe decided to pick up an extra shift, thinking they would only have to deal with rain and wind-related issues. What they encountered, though, was much worse. In one particular incident, Johnny and Joe paddled an inflatable police raft against a raging current to rescue three of their MTA "brothers" from the roof of a van, even though Johnny couldn't swim and had never been on a boat. Together, Johnny and Joe rescued almost 30 people during the storm.
