First Responders in Cleveland honored for work in the rescue of the three kidnapped women: CNN's Pamela Brown Reports

In a ceremony Cleveland's first responders were honored for their work in rescuing the three kidnapped women found in Cleveland after going missing nearly a decade ago. The first responders got to share their stories, and one  reflected on the poignant moment when they found the girl. One responder described it as 'very emotional,' and it took 'everything just to hold it together.' The responders explained how they were the first people that these girls had seen since they were taken into captivity ten years ago.

The girls are reportedly recovering well. Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight reportedly talked to one and other recently. The girls are also learning to use new technologies that they had not seen since their rescue such as iPhones.
