Six-year-old Scout Earns Lifesaving Award

Riley Braden, life-saving Florida Girl Scout and one of the youngest Scouts to ever earn her Lifesaving Award, was commended yesterday by Sen. Don Gaetz, Destin Mayor Craig Barker, Destin Fire Chief Kevin Sasser and was presented with letters from Gov. Charlie Crist and U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller.

Riley received the award for rescuing an 18-month-old toddler from a pool in Destin, FL, on May 16. She was five-years-old at the time. Read about the award ceremony yesterday in the Northwest Florida Daily News, and click here for more info about the incident in May.
