Deputy, Passerby Hailed as Heroes

A deputy who pulled over what appeared to be an erratic driver ended up becoming a life-saver for a Topeka man.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office says deputy Tyler Caudle stopped 72-year old Francis Kennedy at 10:15 pm Wednesday night. When Kennedy exited his vehicle, he collapsed and became unresponsive.

Officials say Caudle called for an ambulance and started CPR. Meantime, another man, Jason Streeter of Holton, stopped to help.

The two men were able to revive Kennedy. Kennedy is now doing well.

Caudle will be awarded the certificate of merit. The sheriff's office also thanks Streeter for his assistance in the incident.
