Two men who rescued a newborn baby girl from a dumpster in Boca Raton this past May were honored on Thursday morning.The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office presented its Samaritan Award to Yusdani Gonzalez-Delgado and Sergio Vega for their “outstanding act, achievement, or exceptional service to his or her fellow man and community.”Gonzalez-Delgado and Vega were walking in an apartment complex near Boca Entrada Blvd on May 8., when all of a sudden, they heard what sounded like a baby crying.Gonzalez-Delgado then jumped into a dumpster and found the infant alive inside a plastic bag.“We both froze because it was something surreal,” Vega told WPTV. “She had trash around her, there were coffee grinds, she was dirty and bloody, but she was alive and well. Even at one point, she opened her eyes and looked at us.”The men took the baby out, cleaned her up, and called 911.Vega worked at the Boca Raton complex as a maintenance manager.The newborn, whose name is Sarah, made a full recovery and was later reunited with her father.Little Sarah and her dad attended Thursday’s awards ceremony and stood alongside the men as they accepted their award.ADORABLE: Today we got to see Sarah, the baby saved from a dumpster in West Boca. Today her rescuers were honored by @PBCountySheriff. @WPTV pic.twitter.com/UfzOFTiSHT— Miranda Christian (@MirandaWPTV) October 31, 2019

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The performance was a reversal from the previous night when the Clippers lost 107-97 at Atlanta — an effort coach Doc Rivers called “awful.” Rivers credited Griffin and Jordan with stopping the Memphis frontline, particularly Zach Randolph, who was returning from missing two games after ingrown toenail surgery.“I thought those two guys fought hard down low,” said Rivers, who recorded his 600th win. “I just thought their leadership defensively was why we won the game.”Kosta Koufos led Memphis with 17 points.The Clippers shot 13 for 20 in the fourth quarter as Paul and Griffin sat on the bench, leaving the game to the backups.“The Clippers played real well defensively,” Koufos said. “They established themselves early in the second half. They hit some tough shots.” The Clippers trailed 42-40 at the break before outscoring Memphis 61-39 in the second half while shooting 56 percent. Los Angeles’ reserves ended the night outscoring their Memphis counterparts 50-31.“That team has a lot of good players,” Randolph said. “They have a lot of good bench players that could be starting.”As is the case when the two get together, it was chippy from the start. After meeting in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs the last two years, a rivalry has developed.In third, Jerryd Bayless shoved Griffin for a flagrant 1. Randolph started mouthing with anyone in a Clippers uniform. And the lobbying for calls from both teams led official Danny Crawford to warn the coaches he had heard enough.In the meantime, the Clippers turned up the defense, enabling them to click off a 21-7 run to open the quarter for a double-digit lead.“I thought the way we responded was good,” Griffin said. “There are challenges mentally and physically, and I think that was a mental challenge for us. We were mentally tough in that situation.”The rally helped the Clipper outscore Memphis 24-11 in the frame and carry a 64-53 lead into the final quarter.Los Angeles connected on 10 of its first 14 shots in the fourth, continuing to build the lead to as many as 24.Several Clippers players said the frustration from games like the one at Atlanta is they believe in their ability to play good defense.“It would be one thing if we knew were weren’t capable of it, and we didn’t have the bodies and the people to execute it, but we do,” Paul said. “We have myself, young, athletic guys that know what we’re capable of. I may not be athletic, but I am young.” MEMPHIS, Tenn. >> The Clippers tightened their defense waiting for the offense to come around.The result was a second-half burst with a strong push from the reserves to lead Los Angeles to a 101-81 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday.“I looked up at one point, and we were shooting like 28 percent,” Clippers forward Blake Griffin said. “Our defense was keeping us there, then we finally took the game over when we started hitting shots. That’s a good lesson for us.”Reserves Darren Collison and Jamal Crawford scored 15 points each to lead the Clippers. Chris Paul also had 15 points and eight assists as Los Angeles snapped a two-game losing streak. Griffin added 14 points and nine rebounds, while DeAndre Jordan had 10 points and 14 boards.
