ICC to recognize woman who saved Auburn man's life

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN - The Illinois Commerce Commission has announced it will honor a central Illinois woman who saved the life of an Auburn man earlier this year with a recognition ceremony on November 23.

According to a release from ICC Senior Public Information Officer Bob Gough, the ceremony will honor the efforts of Ashley Aldridge, who saved a man whose wheelchair became stuck on a set of railroad tracks.  Officials say Aldridge pulled Earl Moorman from his wheelchair moments before it was struck and destroyed by a train.

The ceremony will be held near the railroad crossing at the intersections of Kennedy Street and Washington Street in Auburn at about 11:30 a.m.  Several ICC officials will be in attendance to make a presentation to Aldridge.
