ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10)— A young girl from Schuylerville was awarded by Senator Chuck Schumer on Monday for a selfless act.
During Senator Schumer’s JetBlue announcement at Albany International Airport, Schuylerville’s Kallie Ahern was honored for tending to an injured bald eagle.
Last month she jumped into action after spotting an injured bald eagle on the side of the road, wrapping him in her coat. Kallie stayed with the eagle until the DEC arrived to take care of him.
Along with her award, her family was gifted a free trip to Florida from JetBlue.
