A Hero Amongst
Life can be altered in a split-second. Sometimes bad things
happen that have a positive outcome and sometimes, a regular person
becomes a hero… sometimes all of these things happen at once…all in
On Friday, April 8, 2016, Mike Gonzalez, from the Labor Finders
of Homestead, Florida office was transporting the offices' regular
crew of workers (including Daniel Little, Rayviel Evans, Ramon
Martinez, Tremayne Russell and Otis Warren III) down to Marathon,
FL for a painting job. On the way to the job site, our driver back
tracked north to pick up an additional worker who was having car
troubles. On the way back south with the extra worker, one of our
employees spotted a white car almost fully submerged off the edge
of the road in the water. Mr. Gonzalez immediately stopped the van
and all of the workers jumped out…anxious to help.
The driver of the vehicle, Mrs. Peggy West had tried to avoid an
animal in the road on her way down south and in doing so had
accelerated over the median and into the shallow waters of the
Atlantic Ocean. Mrs. West was in an obvious state of shock and even
though the car was mere feet from being completely submerged, our
brave worker, Mr. Otis Warren III jumped in without hesitation,
while our other workers shouted encouragements to Mrs. West.
Due to his bravery and lack of fear in assisting at a moments'
notice, Mr. Warren was able to effortlessly carry Mrs. West safely
on to the shore. It was a miracle that Mrs. West was not injured;
she was just a little bit of water-logged. All this this took place
while the police and fire rescue was still on its way!!
Mrs. West's husband is a general contractor in the Keys and she
was able to get the Labor Finders Homestead office phone number
from promotional materials her husband had on his desk at work. She
called our office and spoke to Mr. Ivan Gutierrez, the Branch
Manager and asked that we provide her name and phone number to Otis
so she could thank him.
Upon his arrival at the office in the afternoon, Mr. Warren was
very humble and said he was not a hero. He just did what he thought
was right. Mrs. West has provided our office with her contact
information in order to set up a reunion and she even gave our
office a lead to her husband's company so that if they ever are in
need of labor, we are the first ones they think of.
She is extremely grateful for the quick thinking and fearless
Mr. Otis Warren, III and so are all of us at Labor Finders.
