A Kingston man has won a Carnegie Medal for heroism and an accompanying $5,000 grant for saving a 10-year-old boy from drowning at a Scituate beach last year. The Carnegie Hero Fund Commission said Wednesday that Robert Eli Meyer, 29, rescued the child, Johaun B. Bennett, on May 14, 2011. Seventeen other medal recipients were announced Wednesday. The commission awards medals and grants to people across the United States and Canada who have been nominated for risking their lives to save others.
