Three Southwest Florida men save 29 people during Hurricane Ian

Fort Myers, FL - Three Southwest Florida men helped evacuate 13 families from one neighborhood, saving 29 lives during Hurricane Ian.

Mike Murphy, a resident of Island Park community in Fort Myers, assisted in the evacuation of 13 families in his neighborhood with the help of his father-in-law Roy, and stepson Tanner.

Mike tells NBC 2 News the men went house-to-house saving families and bringing them back to his home.

The three men saved 29 people during the storm.

Even though the men don't consider themselves heroes, their neighbors disagree.

Patsy Howell tells NBC 2 News "this is exactly what they are. That’s the truth.”
