Nine-year-old Tommy Alter of Highland Park showed off his toy helicopter on Tuesday to the Coast Guard crew that saved him from a kayaking mishap earlier this month. "Thank you so much," his mom, Leslie Alter, told the crew, who landed for a reunion at a Wheeling airport. "We don't want them to happen, but it's also what we train for," rescue swimmer Derek Johnson said. "We're glad to do our jobs."
