A little Boy Scout in Eagan will get a very big award Wednesday morning.

In summer of last year, Cooper Corbo, 8, helped save the life of a toddler in his neighborhood and is now being recognized for his courageous efforts with the Boy Scout's prestigious Medal of Merit.

"I was so worried, I thought he was going to fall to his death, could have been the end of his life," said Corbo "I'm so happy he's alive."

This is a very prestigious award. Out of the 2.7 million Boy Scouts in America, only 101 received the award last year.
