Former franklin river guide bravery award kayaker rescue rescue by 2 women.
The first to be named in an award ceremony
The award for the most courageous kayaker rescue was presented by Kerry O’Malley, the Kerry Cattleman, at the 2015 Kerry Cattleman Award Dinner in Houston on Tuesday.
He was inspired by the story of Amy and Steve Smith, two sisters who were rescued after an accident in New York a few years ago.
Steve died in 2005, the same year their mother, Amy, was injured in a horrific crash.
The Smiths are survived by their sons, who are part of Team USA.
Rescuers who rescued the two of them from a dam in Queens, New York were awarded the coveted DRC Courage Award, which is named after the group of two women, Amy Smith and Steve Smith.
‘What did they do? The answer is that a great many things,’ said Kerry.
‘It’s a difficult question — but it’s a real tough choice of words in this case — they had a clear and present danger in front of them, the immediate peril they faced was that of dying of dehydration or dying of exposure because of the extreme heat and the high levels of salt. The problem was that they were both aware of the problem they faced and were prepared to take action to make them stop in time.’
At the ceremony, a couple, Paul and Janet McPherson of Lumberton in New York, presented Kerry 전립선with an award which Mr McPherson had called the best award he had ever received.
The Smiths are survived by one son, Steve.
‘I’m so happy,’ said Mr McPherson, an organiser at the event.

‘I don’t know if you’ve seen my photos, but those are people who have done a heroic thing at the same time. They’ve come into a situation where they are facing this death and this risk, and they’re trying to work with them, and they think they ca경주안마n make it better.’
And just this week, in a first, the head of the state Department of Natural Resources ordered the state to look into claims that several people involved in the rescue of a kayakeSM 카지노r who had gone down into a dam in Minnesota, in 2013 are responsible for the death of a Minnesota ma
