VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A local first responder is being honored for his quick thinking and actions.
Tyler Furnas is this month's Honoring the Badge recipient.
He was nominated by a man who says Furnas may have saved his life.
Furnas says he was on his way to work when he came upon a motorcycle accident.
He used a belt to make a tourniquet for the patient.
We asked him about it and he humbly passed the credit along to others.
"There were several people on the scene, so that was a group effort. So I actually, we used somebody else's belt because they had it produced before I could get mine off," Furnas told us.
Autoplex Auto Mall sponsored this month's Honoring the Badge award.
