GIRL TO THE RESCUE

Eleven-year-old Brooke Murray, right, was honored by the city of Pinellas Park on Tuesday for saving the life of Quamaine Boatman, 9, during a field trip to Adventure Island on Friday. Quamaine fell from a water slide and apparently hit his head as he fell into the pool. "I was swimming and saw him under the water and I picked him up," Brooke said of the rescue. "I thought he was playing, so I tapped him on the head." Another boy thought he was playing, too, and pushed him back under. So she picked him up again and the lifeguards took over, she said.
