BENTON CITY - Action News is following up on the mother saved by her two little girls. The story we exclusively aired now has received national attention.

CNN, The Huffington Post and Yahoo! have all shared the story online. Several other blogs and other sites have referenced the story, too. The Ellen Eegeneres show has even expressed interest in featuring the family! We're told the show hopes to fly them out for an interview.

The mother - Heather Conrad-Smith - says the girls are lit up with excitement.

"Oh, they're smiling ear-to-ear. They're so excited to have, you know, people talk about them. It's just a big deal for them. It's amazing to know that it's such a story that people can share so widely," said mother Heather Conrad-Smith.
