INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are proud to announce Doug Greenwood, a local Indianapolis, IN resident as the first 2016 season honoree of the Colts Anthem Angels program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Greenwood will be recognized at the Colts home game this Sunday, September 11, 2016, for his outstanding actions displaying courage and bravery in a critical situation.
In August 2016, Greenwood was driving on I-70 when he observed an automobile accident that left a woman trapped inside her burning vehicle.
Greenwood immediately pulled to the side of the road to see how he could help. He was able to open the passenger door, but was unable to get her out of the vehicle. Greenwood stayed with the woman until the firefighters and police arrived on the scene. The woman did sustain some injuries, but luckily, neither she nor Greenwood were burned by the flames.
After the accident, with help from an IMPD officer, Greenwood connected with the woman and her family to check on their recovery progress and meet them in person.
For exemplifying great courage and heroism, we are proud to honor Doug Greenwood as this week's Anthem Angel.
"Anthem Angels…Honoring Everyday Heroes" was established by the Indianapolis Colts and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to pay tribute to Hoosier "First Respondents" who may have received little or no recognition for the strides they have made to help others in human-service related professions.
In honor of Greenwood's heroism, he will receive four (4) VIP Club Seat Tickets to the Colts game, a feature story with his photo in the Colts gameday magazine (the Scout) and on www.colts.com, as well as on-field recognition at the game.
Nominations are currently being accepted for upcoming 2016 home games. For more information about Anthem Angels, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, please visit: www.colts.com/anthemangels.
