Local heroes were recognized Friday at 16th Annual Community Heroes Breakfast hosted by the American Red Cross. In total, 5 individuals or groups of people in Fairfield County were honored for their kind and courageous acts. 

Nineteen-year-old lifeguard Brenda Morataya was one of those honorees, jumping into the ocean without second thought, or any equipment, to save a 16-year-old boy from drowning at Stamford's Cummings Beach. 

This wasn't Morataya's first save. Just a month before, the Stamford native saved an even younger boy.  Trained by the Red Cross, Morataya has been a lifeguard for about 4 years now, and hopes to someday become a prosecutor. Organizers say heroes like Morataya are more than deserving of the recognition.
