Ilir Alibali, a concrete mixer driver with O&G Industries, recently was recognized by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) with its annual Safety Award.

Alibali received the award for saving a driver in 2017. The driver had driven his sedan through O&G's Davenport Street Concrete Plant in Stamford and into the harbor. Alibali dove into the water and pulled the despondent driver to safety.

"With one hand I held the tire on the barge and with other I grabbed onto the guy and then pulled the guy out. He was really lucky," said Alibali.

The award was presented at the 2018 NRMCA annual conference in National Harbor, Md.
