State Trooper honored for Heroic Act


CULLMAN, ALA (WIAT)- A State Trooper in Cullman was honored by State Representative Corey Harbison Friday.
Harbison signed a resolution commending State Trooper G.W. Parker for his heroic actions in saving a life.
Last January on Highway 278  Donny Robertson was on his motorcycle and hit by another driver. He had a severed  leg. The resolution said Parker used a tourniquet on Robertson’s leg and saved his life.

 “The tourniquet I feel saved my live, I know saved my life,” said Robertson.

It’s something special to be recognized for that but it wasn’t just me I wanted to make that clear there was more people involved in this than just myself,” said Parker.

Robertson had several surgeries and now has a prosthetic leg.
