Man honored for heroism


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police honored a man on Thursday for saving three kids from a fire at a West Madison apartment.

On June 7, Stan Robinson helped save the children who were trapped on a balcony at the Wexford Ridge Apartments.

He was passing by when he noticed the kids stuck on the burning balcony with their step-dad.

Robinson caught the children as their step father tossed them from the balcony. Robinson says he did what any other person would do. "No, I really, like I said, I give all the glory to God. You know? I was just in the right place at the right time. I wasn't expecting all of this."

Neighbors joined the Madison Police Department in commending Robinson. They presented him with a framed award for his heroic efforts.
