Oneonta Police Officer Ryan Pondolfino shakes hands with Amari Champen, 5, who was honored by Oneonta Police and Fire for showing bravery in calling 911 after his cousin Devon had a seizure while babysitting him. Pondolfino was one of the officers who responded to the call. "We've seen 20 year olds with less composure than Amari had," he said. Behind them are Mayor Gary Herzig and Fire Chief Patrick Pigeon. Amari was treated to a tour of both stations, as well as certificates and a gift bag for his bravery. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
