The heroes who helped save the life of a teen pinned under a car earlier this month were honored Monday with a City Council citation.
Some of the heroes included the cast and crew of a Brooklyn-based TV show called "Gravesend."
Three weeks ago, the cast was shooting a scene near the corner of Avenue X and West 2nd Street when an out-of-control car jumped the curb and slammed into a teenage boy, pinning him underneath.
The heroes worked together to lift the car and get the boy out. They also stayed with him until the ambulance arrived.
Council Member Mark Treyger and Council Member-elect Ari Kagan met the heroes in the heart of Gravesend to present them with the award.
Officials say the teen is still in the hospital recovering from serious injuries but is expected to be OK. His mother sent her gratitude for everyone's actions.
