  • A man with a boat becomes hero to his neighbors in hurricane aftermath

    Mark Bergstresser is considered a hero to his neighbors in the Mayfair neighborhood off of Hwy 211 in Lumberton, N.C. as he uses his fishing boat to help ferry stranded neighbors to friends and relatives on the highway after floodwaters closed the road.
