Pair Awarded Carnegie Medal For Saving Man Drowning In Charles River

Two people who saved a man from drowning in the Charles River are being honored with a Carnegie Medal for heroism.

The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission says off-duty sheriff's lieutenant
Ross Klun and paralegal Catherine Kinyua climbed over a railing and jumped into the river to save the 35-year-old man in 2016.

The honors are given to Americans and Canadians who risk their
lives trying to save someone else.
