Legislator Abrahams Honors Rohan Wray, Uniondale Hero

Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead) recently presented Rohan Wray, a Uniondale resident, with County honors for his heroic efforts to save two lives. Earlier this month, Mr. Wray was driving past a house on Southern Parkway in Uniondale and saw smoke billowing out a window on the second floor. He immediately went into action, kicked in the door, looked through a window and saw a child in the home. Having rescued the child, he ran back into the burning home and rescued the child’s grandfather, who is blind.

Legislator Abrahams said, “Mr. Wray is a true hero. It takes a special person to risk his life to try and save someone else’s. It’s people like him that make our community the special place that it is.”
