Logan McMahan, a 5th grader at Garfield Elementary school, was presented a certificate of recognition from Sgt. Jeff Woodward at Friday morning’s assembly.

Logan was on safety patrol Thursday before school when a young girl was walking with her mother and darted out into traffic past a teacher, past the safety patrol sponsor and behind Logan.

The driver of a pickup never slowed down as the truck approached the girl.

Logan reached out and grabbed the little girl and saved her from serious injury or death.

According to the Garfield Safety Patrol Sponsor who witnessed the near accident, Logan was watching for traffic and had just received his safety patrol training last Friday.
