Two key figures in the Flint water crisis were named among Time Magazine's top 100 most influential people of the year.

Dr. Marc Edwards and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha were among the handful of people that made the water crisis public.

"Up against official ignorance and indifference, Edwards and Hanna-Attisha were right, they were brave, and they were insistent. Flint is still a crime scene, but these two caring, tough researchers are the detectives who cracked the case," Rachel Maddow is quoted saying on Time's website.

The website breaks down the 100 list into different  categories including pioneers, titans, artists, leaders and icons. Edwards and Hanna-Attisha were listed as pioneers.

Other people on the list include Caitlyn Jenner, Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama and Adele. You can view the complete list here.
