A British tourist, who was touring Orlando Florida, who had caught a toddler who suddenly had fallen from the top of a four-storey Florida hotel was given an award for her quick thinking.
Beard had seen Jah-Nea Myles hanging from a balcony railing at the Orlando's Econo Lodge hotel and quickly ran underneath in order to break the baby's fall.
Beard, who is 44 years old, and is from Worksop, Nottinghamshire, had stated that "It felt like something anyone would have done."
She had been given what is known as the Orange County Sheriff Office's Medal of Merit.
She informed the reporters that she had not remembered catching the child, but had remembered seeing the baby fall.
Beard had stated that "I'm really honoured to have been recognised in this way."
