Senior Trooper Chris Anderson, center, and his wife, Jeana, smile as he receives the Louisiana State Police Uniformed Trooper of the Year Award from Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson. Anderson has been responsible for several large narcotics seizures, including finding contraband in the external fuel tank of a pickup in what State Police said was the largest methamphetamine seizure in the U.S. this year.

This past Mother’s Day, a 15-year-old boy saved his mother and two younger brothers from a partially submerged vehicle in Bayou Caillou near Houma.

Hunter Marie’s heroism as well as the extraordinary actions of several other civilians and State Police employees were recognized Wednesday at the Louisiana State Police 2010 Annual Awards Ceremony.

The vehicle Hunter Marie and his family were riding in landed in the bayou after it crashed into another vehicle that had slammed on its brakes, the teenager said.

Marie said he got out of the vehicle through an open window and rescued his 6- and 8-year-old brothers first.

He said he couldn’t pull his mother out of the vehicle because her seat belt was jammed, so he held her head above the water until emergency personnel arrived.
