Henrietta N.Y./Palmyra, N.Y. - Out of 19 individuals honored, three of the Carnegie heroes are from this area.
They include, Chris Patino and Mustafa Said. They were honored for risking their lives to help save Nicole Bean, as she was being stabbed inside the Henrietta Wegmans in January of last year.
Chris tells us he still thinks about that day. He remembers seeing Nicole bleeding and didn't think twice about confronting the suspect, to save Bean's life.
The 18 year old says he is honored to receive this award. He tells us this incident changed his life, but that he would again risk his life to help someone.
26 year old Matthew R. Scribner was also named a Carnegie hero. He jumped in the water in Swifts Landing Park in Palmyra to save two brothers from drowning.
Scribner showed us where he jumped in the water and how he dragged both Kurt and Brett Deisinger to shore. The fire chief told Scribner's father, his son saved their lives. Matt Scribner tells us he isn't surprised by his son's actions that day but is still "very proud."
Along with a medal, the young heroes will receive a five-thousand dollar reward.
Patino says he will use the money to help pay for tuition at Monroe Community College.
Scribner, who just started working for a builder, and is learning the trade, will use the money to pay bills.
