Terrebonne Woman Called "Hero" For Rescuing 2 Year Old Boy From A Canal

REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police and Redmond Fire and Rescue are calling a woman who saved the life of a 2-year-old boy a hero. Bailey Vardanega of Terrebonne was headed home Tuesday when she stopped because a man was stopping traffic on Highway 97. The man was the father of a 2 year old who got out of his Grandmas house and was running across Highway 97. Vardanega says the boy ran off the highway and headed for a fence, went through the fence, and went into a canal. She says she ran, spotted him in the water then dove in, grabbed the boy, and got him out. Vardanega has two children of her own. The toddler is okay and was returned to his father.
