FARGO—It was an average day for Brandon Markle as he was driving down University back to a job site for Northstar Fence. That was when he saw a child running into traffic in the corner of his eye. The kid was a 4-year-old boy by himself, making his way to Family Fare. Brandon says he knew immediately what he had to do. He pulled over and helped the kid out of the street and onto the sidewalk.
