An Evanston police officer was honored Monday night for his rescue of a boy earlier this week from the icy waters of the Des Plaines River.

Officer Sean O'Brien was recognized by Evanston's city council for his attentiveness and quick action in pulling the seven year-old boy to safety.

The child had wandered from his house about a block away from the river in Des Plaines.
