Visalia 11-year-old gets prestigious Girl Scouts award for saving her mother’s life

Visalia, CA (KFSN)-The Visalia girl won one of the Girl Scout’s highest awards for her heroic deeds and her mother’s life-saving.

Eleven-year-old Galilea Gonzalez was awarded the US Medal of Honor Girl Scout for her life-saving actions.

“I was nervous when I got on stage, but I’m honored and humble,” she told Action News.

Last spring, Galilea’s mother, Karmina Cortez, fainted and suffered a stroke. Galilea did not hesitate and put into practice the training of Girl Scouts.

The incident happened while they were visiting her uncle.

Galilea had to figure out his address in a hurry as he was leaving home to carry out his errands.

“If she doesn’t come to help, I don’t know where I am,” says Karmina.

“This might have been worse because Galilea suffered from anxiety and panic attacks, so I was really proud of her, but she was able to calm down and do it all. I looked for a piece of paper. She didn’t. Know where we were and how calm we were! “

Galilea has been a Girl Scout for six years and is now part of the Girl Scout-Army 2359 in Southern Central California.

Her military leader says the award for her brave action is natural and another example of being a scout.

Galilea plans to become a scout and serve the community as much as possible.

Her mother and scout leader will undoubtedly take her far away with her big heart and courageous action.
