Cape Breton honours

Two Cape Bretoners have been honoured for heroism.

The late Michelle Curtis of Lingan was awarded the medal of bravery by Governor General David Johnston yesterday.  Curtis died while saving a group of children caught in a riptide off Dunvegan.  Her husband Karl accepted her posthumous award.

Liam Bernard was awarded the Star of Courage for his part in saving two people from a burning camper van after a crash near Melford last September that killed the driver of the other vehicle.
