Summer associate part of heroic bridge rescue efforts

Minnesota Lawyer has learned of at least one member of Minnesota's legal community who participated in the heroic rescue efforts following the collapse of the I35 bridge.

Bowman and Brooke summer associate Will Barron and his wife were in the immediate vicinity of the bridge when it collapsed last Wednesday evening. They were on the scene assisting victims immediately.

A photo of Will carrying an injured person out of the wreckage appeared in People magazine on Thursday Aug. 2. (He's in the gray shirt and blue pants.) A co-worker of Will's, Christopher Fowlkes, sent an e-mail around to other Bowman and Brooke employees today in which he states: "[Will] insists that he is not as bald as the picture depicts. Whether or not that is true I can't say. But I can say that what he did was truly heroic and I am glad to know him."
