HSU to Present $1,000 To Man Burned Rescuing His Dog!
Tyler Broberg to Recieve Humane Hero Award
HSU Executive Director Gene Baierschmidt will visit burn victim Tyler Broberg on Sunday, January 20th at 11 a.m. to present “Tyke” with the HSUʼs Humane Hero Award and a $1,000 donation to aid his recovery. Members of the media are welcome to accompany Mr. Baierschmidt as the Humane Society recognizes Mr. Broberg for his heroic act.
On December 22, 2012 Tyler Broberg risked his life, racing into his burning home to save his 2 year old dog “Cash” from the smoke and ﬂames. During this heroic act, Tyler was severely injured, suffering third degree burns over 30 percent of his body. All of the Brobergʼs belongings were lost in the blaze...except for the pup he valiantly rescued.
In special recognition of this heroic deed, The Humane Society of Utah will present a $1,000 check to the Brobergs to honor the uncommon courage and compassion Tyler displayed while coming to the aid of a helpless animal. The heroism exhibited on that day, which came at great personal cost to Tyler and his wife Ashley, serves as a reminder of our animal friendsʼ value ... and the special role they play in our lives.
The Humane Society of Utah salutes Tyler Broberg and and is proud to present him with this organizationʼs highest honor...The Humane Hero Award. The Humane Society hopes Tylerʼs selﬂess act will serve as an example and promote humane treatment of all animals.
