_The Good Samaritans who helped to pull two young children from the Erie Canal last month are being honored.
Medical students Lindsay Wahl, Sarah Nevaraz and Bridget Hughes, along with U of R professor Dr. David Lambert and Rochester Police Officers Paul Dondorfer and Adam Alliet will receive the third annual Camp Good Days and Special Times "Courage Award."
The award is part of the Camp's Courage Bowl.
The group pulled the two 8-year-olds, Sam and Selah Clanton, to safety after the stroller they were in accidentally rolled into the canal.
Sam has recovered but his sister, Selah, suffered brain damage and has been at Golisano Children's Hospital since.
The group of honorees will receive the award during the Courage Bowl football game this Saturday.
