A McLeod County Sheriff’s Deputy has been honored for his life saving actions. Deputy Ken Reynolds was honored recently with the Sheriff’s Office Lifesaving Award. While responding to a call on December 29, 2019, Reynolds helped an adult male victim with an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. Deputy Reynolds secured the mans airway and provided emergency medical assistance until first responders and EMS arrived. The Sheriff’s office says If it was not for the actions of Deputy Reynolds, there would have almost certainly been a different outcome for the male on that day.
