LENEXA, Kan. (AP) _ A northeast Kansas teenager who braved this week's winter storm to pull dozens of cars out of the snow has been recognized for his good deeds.
KSHB-TV reports 19-year-old Andrew Flood headed out from his Lenexa home in a pickup truck Tuesday night amid snow blanketing the Kansas City metro region. One by one, he hooked up his truck to stranded cars and pulled them free _ for free.
By sunrise Wednesday, Flood had towed 53 cars.
Flood didn't ask for money, but an executive of LongHorn Steakhouse heard about his work and gave him a $200 gift card Thursday.
Flood, who's training to be a paramedic, said he likes to help people and knows that not all drivers have money for a tow.
