A lake area youngster is being hailed for her quick thinking and reaction during a medical emergency which just may have saved the life of her brother.

“The guys were able to realize that it was something special, and for her to be able to remain calm and really work with them to help them get through that was paramount and him having a successful outcome in that. So I’m really happy that Captain Scott was able to recognize that for what it was and make sure that she got the recognition she deserved.”

Incoming Gravois Fire Chief Dustin Hancock also told KRMS News that a special awards ceremony was recently held to recognize the actions of Rebecca Lear during the emergency involving her brother, Truman, which happened just a couple days before Christmas.

Presenters for the awards included representatives from the Gravois Fire District, Laurie Police Chief Mike Nienhuis and Missouri State Fire Marshal Tim Bean.
