About this Article

A Mundelein student's decision to not just pass by a man in trouble saved the stranger's life, according to village officials. Hazel Walker was on her way home from Mundelein High School on Jan. 28 when she noticed a man with his face down in a puddle of muddy water. She dragged the man from the water, turned him over on his back and called 911.
