An Indiana Conservation Officer selflessly helps an injured woman in French Lick.
Indiana Department of Natural Resources says Conservation Officer Zac Howerton did not hesitate to grab a life jacket, shed his gear, and jump in the water to help a woman in need.
Indiana DNR says the woman was stranded on a stickup, entangled with treble hooks of a fishing lure lodged in her leg.
Officer Howerton swam to her and helped her to shore for treatment.
Officer Howerton was assisted by the fire department, French Lick Police Department and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
Indiana DNR says the lady was very appreciative of the teamwork to free her.
