Congresswoman Candice Miller complimented the heroism of Mount Clemens-based businessman Dean Petitpren and his wife, Diane, who last week helped rescue a New York pilot who was found by the couple 17 hours after he crashed into Lake Huron.
Miller, a Harrison Township Republican, knows the Petitprens and said it was fortunate they were boating in the area when they saw the pilot in the water waving his sock in the lake to attract their attention.
“They saved a man’s life,” Miller said Saturday on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. “I just think with everything happening in Washington here this week, it is good for us to take a moment and think about the human spirit and the people that have charitable and caring hearts.”
Dean Petitpren, a Grosse Pointe Farms philanthropist, is president of Petitpren Inc., a wholesale beer distributor.
