[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E868] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING EVE GARCIA ______ HON. LOIS FRANKEL of florida in the house of representatives Thursday, June 9, 2016 Ms. FRANKEL of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Eve Garcia, a woman from my district who saved the life of a six-year-old boy on April 29, 2016. Ms. Garcia stepped out of her home in West Palm Beach, Florida to find the young boy drowning in a neighborhood pond. Without hesitation, she rushed into the water and pulled the struggling boy to safety. A bystander called 911, while Ms. Garcia continued to hold and comfort the young child. He was rushed to the hospital where he was treated then later released with no residual side effects from the horrific incident. I would like to acknowledge and thank Ms. Garcia for her quick response and heroic actions. Her selflessness in that moment helped to save a young boy's life and, as his family is ever thankful for her actions, I am also thankful to have such a caring woman in my community. In honor of Ms. Eve Garcia and her actions, I am pleased to recognize her before the United States House of Representatives. ____________________
