Three Martell's employees who had saved a boy from drowning in the ocean in front of Martell's in Point Beach were honored on Monday by state lawmakers.

Matt Inman, Jim Howell and Nick Haines, Martell's staff members who rescued a boy who had ventured into the ocean when the beach was red-flagged and unguarded on July 21, were honored by 10th District legislators.

Senator Jim Holzapfel and Assemblymen David Wolfe and Greg McGuckin presented state resolutions to the Martell's employees outside Martell's in Point Pleasant Beach.

It's great to see these local heroes be honored at the state level. A local commendation would be appropriate, especially since there's been nonstop chatter about the Boardwalk business owners. Employees like these are the real deal.

I agree, Heather. It speaks volumes about the courage of these young men. Perhaps the real people of PPB will do something for them. We all know about the element that this town suffers from.

From what I understand, the state lawmakers wanted to present these to the employees during the summer when all their co workers were present but could not park in District 4 so they had to do it this week after the parking ban stopped on the 15th.
