DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. (WMC) - Some DeSoto County deputies are being hailed as heroes after acting quickly to help a child hurt in a bike crash.
Twelve-year-old Christian was badly hurt after crashing on his dirt bike last month.
The first deputy at the scene applied a tourniquet to stop the bleeding from Christian’s leg. An off-duty firefighter came to help and soon other deputies were at the scene providing aid.
The deputies had a chance to visit Christian as he’s recovering from surgeries and even gave him some department swag to keep.
