Town Manager Brian Raducci presented Hometown Heroes awards to two lifeguards who rescued a 67-year-old swimmer Oct. 21. Senior ocean lifeguard and paramedic Ryan Fullerton and ocean lifeguard Marc Fichner saw the man in distress and pulled him from the surf. They called police for assistance and administered AED shocks, which gave the victim a slight pulse. They continued their lifesaving efforts until Palm Beach County Fire Rescue personnel arrived and transported the man to the Delray Medical Center for additional treatment.
