PARK CITY, Kan. (KSNW) – A Park City teen was honored for his bravery and heroism.
On May 26, a 12-year-old boy was swept into the flood swift moving Chisholm Creek.
That’s when 16-year-old Geoffrey Lopez jumped into action.
While others were calling 911, Lopez climbed onto a tree branch and pulled the kid to safety.
“He really couldn’t help himself so I mean, I might as well just go ahead and help him you know. Getting this award, I mean, I never really had an award so I mean it feels good just knowing that I could like play my part you know,” Lopez told KSN News.
Lopez was given a life-saving award along with the very first park city mayor’s challenge coin for going above and beyond.
