Two YCSO Deputies Saves A Person’s Life Friday In Sedona

Two Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies are being celebrated after saving a life Friday night in Sedona. The deputies responded to a welfare check on a possible suicide subject on Sandrock Drive in Sedona. When they arrived, they checked the house and heard a vehicle running inside the garage. They saw a doggie door on the garage door, so they knocked out the plastic cover, but they were unable to unlock the garage door via the doggie door. Once inside they saw the person in the car with a plastic tube running from the car’s exhaust into the cab. Deputies opened the garage door for ventilation and then tried to break the driver’s side window with a rock, but was unsuccessful. Deputies then pulled on the window until it broke and were able to unlock the door. They took the person to the driveway unconscious until help arrived. The person regained consciousness and was taken to Verde Valley Medical Center for treatment.
