Windom hero revealed

Here’s your latest hero, Minnesota.

Paul Langseth stepped forward today to say that he’s the guy who stopped to help a truckdriver in Windom, Minn., this week.

After being rear-ended by another truck, the driver was stuck in a burning cab, and the state trooper who was trying to free him was making no progress.

“It’s Minnesota, it’s what we were raised to do,” Langseth told a news conference in Mankato this afternoon.

Langseth asks those who have paid attention to the story to recognize caregivers who do good every day but don’t get any recognition.

“This is a good story,” he said. “There are people out there like me who are willing and able to help.”
