The American Red Cross of Southern Maine honored Mary Jane Chanese and Adam Farrington as two of its Real Heroes, or "ordinary people who perform extraordinary acts."
According to WCSH, Chanese is a social worker at Prides Corner School "who has helped hundreds of children and families," and Farrington is a Westbrook animal control officer "who answered a radio call about a person in cardiac arrest and helped revive him."
