MOSCOW, July 6 (RIA Novosti) - A Carnegie fund commission in the U.S. awarded a medal for heroism Friday to a Russian man who died trying to save a girl from falling into a canyon.
Vitaly Tsikoza, 41, of Novosibirsk fell 140 meters (450 feet) to his death trying to save three-year-old Paulina Filippova at American Fork Canyon in Utah on September 24, 2006.
The Pittsburgh-based Carnegie Hero Fund Commission meets five times annually to choose honorees.
Since the fund was established in 1904, over 9,000 people have received heroism medals.

But if there are good men in the nation of our enemy, it shows that hope is not lost.
Can you imagine a Hamas member trying to save a little girl like that? Now THAT’S a country where all hope is lost!
