BRICK – A local man was honored by his State Assemblyman for saving the life of a woman in Piscataway Sept. 13.

Brick resident Michael Mosier has worked for the Piscataway Department of Public Works for 30 years. Back in September, he swam into shoulder-deep floodwaters to rescue a 50-year-old woman trapped in her nearly submerged vehicle near a railroad overpass between Birch Run Drive and First Avenue in Piscataway.

Assemblyman Dave Wolfe honored Mosier Monday with the State Commendation to acknowledge his heroic achievement.

““Through his courage and devotion to helping others, Michael represents the best of Piscataway,” Piscataway Mayor Brian C. Wahler said in a Sept. 17 press release.  “To say that Michael went above and beyond the call of duty is an understatement.  A person is alive today thanks to Michael’s quick thinking and valiant efforts.”
