Deputies receive recognition for life saving

Deputies Chris Duncan, Jaime Miranda and Spenser Bryan received Sheriff’s Medals for life saving efforts at a ceremony held Friday in Marathon.

Deputy Duncan received his medal after repeatedly diving into the water in an attempt to save a child who he’d been told was trapped in a submerged car. The mother, who was injured and confused, thought her child was in the car at the time; it was later discovered the child was, thankfully, not in the car and was safe at home.

Deputies Bryan and Miranda stopped a man armed with a knife from killing himself; the tense and distraught man was disarmed without injury to himself or to the officers on the scene.
