A St. Louis firefighter received the Medal of Valor on Tuesday for rescuing a child from an apartment fire on Cates Avenue in North St. Louis last year.
Johnathan Vallero and a fellow firefighter were searching the second story of the home when he found the child collapsed on the floor. Vallero scooped up the child and ran outside to awaiting medics.
The child did survive.
Vallero received his award this afternoon with his wife on stage with him.
