BISB Student to Be Recognized at Mayoral Ceremony

November 25, 2014

British International School of Boston high school student Teal Fechtor-Pradines will be honored as part of a mayoral ceremony at the Boston Police Department next Monday, recognized for heroic actions that helped save the life of a Boston Common park ranger last month.

Fechtor-Pradines was hanging out at Boston Common with a group of friends on October 14 when he witnessed the stabbing of two park rangers.  What he did next has led many to hail his efforts as heroic.

Fechtor-Pradines and a few other onlookers rushed to the side of the more severely injured ranger, carried him to a nearby park bench and took off their sweatshirts and shirts to hold pressure to his wounds and try to stop the bleeding while waiting for emergency personnel.

And while it was an action that very well may have saved the ranger’s life, Fechtor-Pradines doesn’t see it that way.

“I don’t feel like that,” he said Monday. “I feel like everyone should have done what I did…I wish more people were willing to help out our fellow humans on this earth.”

Fechtor-Pradines has helped the police department with their case against the man accused of stabbing the rangers, testifying at his arraignment and in front of a grand jury. 

Now, on Monday, December 1, he will be recognized for his actions by Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and members of the Boston Police Department. We look forward to sharing news from the ceremony next week.

Congratulations to Teal!
