MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - A man who sacrificed his life for a friend is being honored Friday. Memphian Andrew Svgdik died in a crash last week.
Officials in Chattanooga said he pushed a girl out of the way when a car crashed into him.
19-year-old Andrew Svgdik was a graduate of Christian Brothers High School.
Friends said he was a friend who could make everyone laugh. He had musical talent and was an encouraging teammate on the soccer field. It is certainly fitting that they honor him at the very place where he inspired them.
When you lose someone you love, it often makes you realize what really matters.
"If anybody ever needed help Andrew would be there," said coach Rogerio Lima.
When the Christian Brothers Community lost Andrew Svgdik, they came together.
For some it is comforting to know that he was killed saving someone's life.
