Man saved at last moment after attempting to jump off bridge
Sheriff Tom Spangler would like to commend our very own TANGO ”Traffic Unit” Officer, Brian Rehg for his efforts in saving the life of a young man that attempted to jump off a bridge on Pleasant Ridge Road On April 8, 2019.
Officer Rehg along with KPD Lt.
Chris McCarter grabbed and held onto the young man just seconds before he went over the bridge.
Because of their vigilance and quick actions the young man is alive today.
McCarter and Officer Rehg are true local heroes, not just because of this one incident but because they continue to risk their lives daily for the safety of others.
Thank you gentlemen for your continued hard work and dedication to Knoxville and Knox County!
