eleven-year-old saves sister

SALISBURY, Md. – A courageous young man is being honored for saving his sister’s life. In November 2022, 11-year-old La’Prentis Doughty escaped with minor burns as his house was burning down. When he got outside, he realized his two-year-old sister was still inside. Doughty immediately rushed back into the burning house, and rescued his sister.

Since his heroic act, Doughty has received multiple awards for saving his sister’s life. Tuesday, Doughty collected two more, as the Rotary Club of Wicomico County gave him the Hero Award, and he received a citation from State Senator Mary Beth Carozza.
