WASHINGTON PARISH DEPUTY RECOGNIZED FOR SAVING LIVES OF TWO WOMEN

WASHINGTON PARISH DEPUTY RECOGNIZED FOR

SAVING LIVES OF TWO WOMEN

 

In July 2017, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office Deputy Ronnie Manning was working south of Bogalusa when he saw a plume of smoke and went to investigate.  He discovered an overturned and burning car with two women trapped inside.  Deputy Manning retrieved a hammer from his vehicle and broke out the rear window of the vehicle which was engulfed in flames.  His quick and heroic actions saved the lives of the two women who were able to escape through the opening created by Deputy Manning. 

On February 2, WoodmenLife recognized Deputy Manning and presented him with their Life Savers Award.  Jonathan Williams, Field Representative for Woodmen Life, presented Deputy Manning with the award. 

Sheriff Randy Seal commented.  “This is a well-deserved award and I thank WoodmenLife for recognizing the life-saving efforts of Deputy Manning.  He is a very humble man who seeks no recognition for doing what he considers his duty.  It pleases me to see him recognized.  Thanks, Ronnie, for a job well done.”
