Mayor Cooper honors local man for life-saving heroic actions

Mayor Cooper presents Marvin Pinckney with a key to the city

Mayor William E. Cooper at the City Council meeting Tuesday honored Marvin Pinckney for his life-saving heroic actions earlier this month.

 

Pinckney, a retired Army command sergeant major, was in his garage September 3 when he noticed flames coming from a neighbor’s home on Bellwood Road. He called 911 and entered the home to rescue Mary Griffin and her caregiver. With the help of passersby, Pinckney was able to evacuate the women from the home. 

 

“Mr. Pinckney, I know you do not want to be recognized as a hero, but you truly are,” Mayor Cooper said. “The City Council, Chief Davis, and I commend you on your unwavering regards to you own safety and for jumping into action without hesitation.”

 

Cooper went on to say that Pinckney’s actions changed the outcome of a situation that could have been tragic. 

 

Pinckney was presented a plaque and Key to the City for his heroic actions.
