MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) -- A firefighter was awarded Tuesday morning for his heroic actions while off-duty.
Back in September, Timothy Schlomann was driving in Lexington when he noticed a car behind him swerving in the road.
The car passed him and when they came to a red light, Schlomann got out and walked up to the car.
The driver was having a diabetic emergency, so Schlomann took the keys out and called for help.
"My worst fear was, if I hadn't done anything, was obviously, one, to get him off the road so he wouldn't hurt himself, but others too on the road," Schlomann said.
The Madison County Fire Chief presented Schlomann with a pin to say thank you for his bravery and selflessness in a potentially dangerous situation.
