(CNN)The Air Force's Thunderbirds honored a man Friday who jumped into an Ocean City, Maryland, bay last month to save a toddler.
Jonathan Bauer was selected to ride in the back seat of an F-16 as part of the Thunderbirds' "Hometown Hero," program, local officials said.
Bauer, who was also involved in the crash, saw the baby in the water and "jumped into action," Ocean City firefighter and medic Ryan Whittington told CNN's Anderson Cooper last month.
Bauer and his family were also named honorary members of the Ocean City Fire Department, officials said.
