A Madoc man has received a prestigious American award for bravery.
51 year old Calvin Stein has been awarded a Carnegie medal for heroism.
Stein jumped in the way of stampeding ponies at the Tweed Agricultural Fair last July to save a 3 year old girl from being trampled.
He was cut and bruised as a result, but the girl was fine.
The Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Hero Fund Commission investigates stories of heroism and awards medals and cash several times a year.
21 people are the latest to receive the Carnegie medal, including another Canadian, Clark Whitecalf of Gallivan, Saskatchewan.
He was honoured for rescuing a sleeping woman from a burning house in August of last year.
