The American Red Cross recognized 11 area residents for their courage Friday at the San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter’s first Hometown Heroes Celebration. Among the honorees at the banquet at the San Gabriel Hilton in San Gabriel were Norma Perez, a Pasadena police dispatcher, whose crisis negotiation skills helped stop a man from jumping to his death from a building, and Jodi Cassutt, who noticed an elderly man lying at the bottom of a local YMCA pool, pulled him out and gave him CPR. Yesenia Alaniz and Marco and Richard Maldonado of Baldwin Park each received honors for assisting in an attempted rape that occurred this year in El Monte. The three saw a 19-year-old victim screaming for help in the street and stopped to help. “She got in our car and my brother took off after the guy so I started to chase after him too,” Richard Maldonado, 19, said. “I had on my security belt so I grabbed my cuffs and cuffed him right there.” The suspect pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years in prison, officials said. Ben Green, the chapter’s chief executive officer, said the event was the first of its kind but may be repeated in years to come. “This is a great way to focus on the people out there who are doing great things on a volunteer basis and recognize them for it,” Green said. David Yu, of Walnut, was also honored as the Spirit of the Red Cross honoree for his humanitarian efforts and Kerry Manwaring for donating 232 units of platelets to the Pasadena Red Cross Donor Center.
