Bravery awards are being handed out today to a couple of Hunter residents.
Kersley’s Clayton Gidding risked his own life to save the man who was trapped in a burning car after a crash on the Gold Coast in 2007.
He’s being awarded the nation’s second-highest bravery award – The Star of Courage.
And Valentine’s Naomi Roskell is receiving a commendation for brave conduct for saving several people during the Pasha Bulker storm 5 years ago.
The 34-year-old tied some twine round herself and waded through chest-deep water to rescue a mother and two young children who were stranded on the roof of their car at Lambton.
She then saved three children trapped on the wrong side of the road before returning home to her own young family.
