State Rep. Lisa Baldelli Hunt (D-Dist. 49, Woonsocket) presented Woonsocket High School senior Kyle Mulvey with a citation for rescuing a woman who accidentally drove her car onto the ice on Cass Pond in Woonsocket in January. Baldelli Hunt invited Kyle and his family to the Statehouse to be honored by the House of Representatives recently.
Also pictured are State Rep. Stephen Casey (D-Dist. 50) and State Rep. Robert Phillips (D-Dist. 51). Kyle was headed to school shortly before 8 a.m. on Jan. 25 when Ziengxay Kmon, 52, apparently swerved to avoid a school bus and crashed through a wooden fence on Cass Avenue in front of the high school, landing near the center of frozen Cass Pond. When she did not get out of her car, Kyle dropped his backpack, went out on the ice, and helped Kmon get out and walk to safety. He then sat with his arm around her until police arrived.
