Kent residents can help a student earn a Red Cross Hero Award for saving a girl from drowning in the Cuyahoga River this summer.
Todd and Jennifer Fisher nominated Eric Johnston for the award after , Madelyn, from the river in May.
"I would really love to see Eric win this award," Todd Fisher said.
Madelyn was playing near the river in downtown Kent when she slipped and fell into the rushing water. Moments later, Johnston pulled her to safety on the river's west bank several hundred feet from where she fell in.
