It was a snowy day in March of this year. 14-year-old Christy Bray was heading to Camino Elementary School. Her bus was stuck in traffic due to an accident. It turned out Christy’s sister Carly was hit by a car that lost control in the snow as she waited for her school bus. The 17-year-old was pinned to an electricity pole.
This story proves that a bond between sisters is beyond strong. Christy found out her sister was involved in the crash and ran to her sister’s side to keep her conscious and informed paramedics about what was going on.
Christy’s bravery and maturity is why she was awarded the Medal of Honor from the Girl Scouts of the USA. The award is given to a scout who has saved a life, or attempted to save a life.
Carly did lose her leg in the accident, but says her bond with her sister is even stronger now.
