THE BRONX - The 47th Precinct Community Council said thank you to some of its own during a special awards gathering this morning.

The 24th Annual Fellowship Breakfast honored police officers and civilians who have worked to make the areas around Woodlawn, Wakefield and Williamsbridge safer.

Council members shared several heroic stories, including that of officers Nicholas Bundy and David Semarco who ran into a burning building to save a 14-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy before a propane tank explosion.

Bundy and Semarco were two of 15 honorees to receive a golden statuette.

The Rev. Que English was one of four community leaders who also received awards. More than 50 different community organizations were represented at today's breakfast.
