Memorial bridge named after local hero

Posted: Updated:

Family and friends honored a man who gave his life to save other lives on Wednesday

A ceremony in College Park was held to dedicate and reveal the Dekai Amonrasi Memorial Bridge on Roosevelt Highway.

Last July, Amonrasi was killed saving a man after the man's car flipped off the bridge onto railroad tracks.

Amonrasi saved the man and two other witnesses before he was hit and killed by a train.
