BEDFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A young man has received a special recognition from the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office for his role in helping to save a life.

Sheriff Austin Swing presented James “Jasper” Small with a commendation for bravery Monday.

The sheriff said Jasper had been faced with a terrifying situation in which a loved one was experiencing a medical crisis. He was able to keep his composure and call 911 for immediate medical help, then guide first responders to the person needing help.
