  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 
  In honor of Ms. Eve Garcia and her actions, I am pleased to recognize 
her before the United States House of Representatives.
