Those who saved woman's life honored by Randolph County
One of the most selfless acts anybody can do is to help somebody they don’t know. That was the case late in the evening January 21 outside Steeleville.
Three police officers and three civilians assisted in saving the life of a woman who was trapped inside her vehicle following a rollover accident.
Because of those heroic actions, Randolph County Sheriff Shannon Wolff recognized that group of six during the county board’s February 19 meeting with letters of commendation.
“One thing this took is just caring for your fellow person,” Wolff said. “You hear so many things nowadays about how nobody cares about anybody else. I don’t believe that.”
The six people recognized were Steeleville Police Officers Chase Usher and Justin Baker, Randolph County Deputy Sheriff Jonathan Barbour and civilians Willis Keller, Zachary Kothe and Ethan Kothe.
