MELROSE (CBS) — A seventh-grader in Melrose demonstrated her patriotic spirit and athleticism while grabbing an American flag out of a tree last week.

Ashley Reardon noticed that the American flag at Mary Foley Park had detached from the flagpole and was tangled in a tree when she was there with her mother.

Without thinking twice, Ashley scaled the tree to retrieve the flag from a branch.

The flag is still in good condition.
