Drown rescue teens to get gong.

THREE teenagers who saved a girl from drowning two years ago will be honoured for their bravery today.

Pals Ben Graham, David Grant and Alex May, all 16, will be presented with their certificates at a glittering ceremony.

The National Bravery Awards honours young and old for acts of selflessness and today 42 gongs, a mixture of medals and certificates, will be given out. The lads, who attend Ardgillan Community College in Balbriggan, North Dublin, were just 14 when they rescued the 13-year-old girl from drowning in the local harbour.

Ben's mum Louise said: "Teenagers can get a lot of bad press so it is nice for people to know about the good deeds they do too.

"Today the boys are being recognised by their country."
