CU student awarded for bravery
Sophomore business major Kyle DeLapp received the Carnegie Medal on Sept. 20 in recognition of his brave actions in rescuing four children from drowning off of Miramar Beach, Florida. In April 2006, a fierce current swept three boys and one girl from the shore out into the Gulf of Mexico. DeLapp and two friends swam into the current and rescued the children. The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission awards the medal to those who risk their lives while saving or attempting to save the lives of others. DeLapp is one of 19 people in the U.S. and Canada to receive the medal along with a $5,000 grant.
