Governor honors Tama girl

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Governor Culver honored a Tama girl with the Governor's Lifesaving Award on Wednesday.

7-year-old Danielle Seymour was recognized for saving a friend's life a year ago.  While swimming with family friends, a 3-year-old began to drown.  Danielle dove under the water, grabbed the child and pulled her to safety. 

Seymour was selected by a three member panel within the Iowa Department of Public Safety, for her unselfish service to others.
