Boston Celtics honor Gloucester teens Haley Blanchette and Billy Cincotta as ‘Heroes Among Us’

The Boston Celtics recently honored Billy Cincotta, 18, and Haley Blanchette, 20, of Gloucester, MA as ‘Heroes Among Us’ for saving five children from a rip current off the Gloucester end of Long Beach.

Billy, who was working at Cape Ann Motor Inn on Rockport Road heard the cries for help and immediately enlisted the help of Haley. The two of them use a surfboard to retrieve the five children from the water without the help of any lifeguards, who didn’t arrive until after the children were brought to safety.

For their courageous, life-saving actions, the Boston Celtics chose to honor Billy Cincotta and Haley Blanchette as ‘Heroes Among Us.’
