HINDS COUNTY (WLBT) - A Hinds County Deputy was honored Monday for saving a woman's life.
Deputy Tim Keen rescued a woman from her burning mobile home in Byram earlier this month. Officials say 41-year-old Elizabeth McCory wouldn't be alive today if keen hadn't pulled her from the blaze.
The Hinds County Board of Supervisors honored Keen with a letter of commendation. And the sheriff's department gave him a plaque and a medal. The deputy says he recently spoke with the woman he saved.
'She's very thankful. I'm glad. I mean, I guess I was there for a reason, but any other deputy would have the same thing," Keen said.
Keen says he climbed through a window to rescue McCory, who suffered some minor burns and smoke inhalation.

Bravo Zulu , Deputy Keen.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

woo hoo!!! A good story!!!'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Good job, Deputy Keen!http://www.odmp.org/officer/16551-de...l-eron-shannon
Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

As a fellow mobile home resider, I have seen way too many of these homes go up flames. They are like tinderboxes. The whole home can go up in a matter of minutes. Great Job Deputy!!!
