New York Yankees Honor Life-Saving Girl Scout

Yankees.com reports that The New York Yankees honored Tampa, Florida, resident Julianne Ramirez at a recent event. Ramirez is a 12-year-old whose heroism was brought to the Yankees' attention by a report on Tampa Bay News 9's broadcast. At a pool party last June, Julianne saw that a 3-year-old family friend had started to drown and was sinking underwater. Ramirez, using CPR she had learned in third grade with the Girl Scouts, rescued the girl from the pool and began chest compressions, saving her life.

Do you know any life-saving Girl Scouts?
