Texans Honored for Bravery by Carnegie Hero Fund Commission


Five of those honored Wednesday died in the process so their families will receive the awards.

Wal-Mart employees Lincoln LeMere and Archie Jordy were honored less than a month after the man they subdued, Brandon Daniel, was sentenced to death for killing Officer Jaime Padron on April 6, 2012, in Austin.

Also honored with a Carnegie award:

-Michael Jerome Cade of Enid, Okla., rescued a woman from being assaulted by an armed man, who shot Cade in the process, while Henry McHenry of Houston rescued Cade from the armed suspect in Houston, in May 2013.
