My Edmonds News | Annberly, a Brownie Troop member in Lynnwood, receives a Medal of Honor for saving a life. 

A 7-year-old Lynnwood Girl Scout was recognized in Edmonds Saturday afternoon for her efforts to save her 18-month-old brother from choking earlier this year.

Annberly S., a member of Girl Scout Brownie Troop 43866, received a Medal of Honor from Girl Scouts USA during a ceremony Saturday at Edmonds Methodist Church. Because she is a minor, her parents have requested that her last name not be published.

According to Troop 43866 Leader Elliott Gustavson, the second-grader and her 18-month-old brother Joseph were playing in the bedroom of their Lynnwood home the evening of Jan. 19, 2016, when Joseph started making odd noises. When Annberly turned to him, she saw that his face was changing more!
