Today, Sarpy County Sheriff Jeff Davis presented 12-year-old Preston Caniglia with special award during a surprise ceremony at his school. Preston received a Civilian Recognition Award for helping save the life of a young boy.

In June, Preston saw a 3-year-old boy at the bottom of a swimming pool and reacted quickly. He jumped in and pulled the boy from the water. Roxana Francke, a nurse, then performed CPR.

The young boy was hospitalized, but made a full recovery.

Roxana Francke also received a Civilian Recognition Award at the ceremony.
