Eagle Mtn. Girl Awarded for Saving Brother's Life

"An Eagle Mountain girl received a special award Wednesday night for saving her brother's life.

Nine-year-old Katiana Heath escaped from her aunt's home last October and told neighbors her little brother was locked in a bathroom without food. When officers arrived, they found the little boy beaten, unconscious and malnourished.

On Wednesday night, the Utah County Sheriff's Office hailed Katiana as a hero.

"I saved my brother's life, and at least he's not dead because my mom would be crying a lot," Katiana said.

The children's aunt and boyfriend are both serving prison time for the abuse."
