was honoured this week at a ceremony in Arizona for helping to save a toddler's life.Chelsea Cunningham of Sundre, Alberta,
"I will never forget this experience," Cunningham, a 28-year-old mother of three, told the Calgary Sun.
"I feel really blessed that I was able to contribute to someone's life."
On Saturday, Cunningham was one of three good Samaritans who came to a 2-year-old Kylie Lafferty's rescue after she fell into a sewage tank behind the farmer's market in Maricopa, Arizona.
The little girl had been chasing her dog in a nearby area when she stepped onto the septic tank's cracked cover. The cover flipped open and the child plunged into the tank, disappearing under the sewage.
The child's mother's screams alerted Cunningham and two men to the scene.
The men jumped into the tank and swam around until they found Kylie, who showed no signs of life. They lifted the little girl to Cunningham who then performed CPR and mouth-to-mouth until Kylie started breathing again.
