Coweta County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jason Ross, who pulled a female accident victim from a blazing vehicle Saturday, is being praised by supervisors and Coweta Sheriff Mike Yeager, who said Ross will be nominated for statewide honors given to law enforcement officers who show extraordinary courage and valor in the line of duty.
“When he heard the call, Deputy Ross did his duty,” Yeager said. “But in this case he went above and beyond and risked his life to help someone in trouble. We think he deserves to be recognized for his work.”
The incident began around 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
