A West Bend snowplow driver is being hailed as a hero after he saved a 5-year-old boy who wandered away from his home in subzero temperatures. It happened about 4 a. m. last Friday. "It was snowing, blowing and miserable," David Gehrke said about that morning he climbed into his truck. As he cleared streets near South River Road and Kilbourn Avenue, he saw something by his wing blade. "I realized that was not a dog or a deer, that was a small little boy just dressed in a pair of zip-up onesie pajammies," Gehrke said.

"He just exited our townhouse, walked down the road a little bit and he was found. "She asked her son what he was doing that morning. "Just (going) for a walk," Maddox said. "We see strange things, but this was a life-threatening situation," Gehrke said. West Bend police gave Gehrke a certificate of appreciation. "Awards are great, but the biggest reward I got is when I handed that child to the police officer to know that child is safe. "Weissenburger said she's taking steps to make sure Maddox doesn't wander off again. "I just bought a bunch of alarms, cameras," she said. Police determined nothing criminal happened. Maddox was not injured.
