XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Xenia boy’s unusual idea ended up saving a person’s life.
Tully Wassom, 6, was honored Wednesday for his role in a rescue on Florida Drive in Xenia in April.
Medic crews responded to the home to treat a person who fell. Medics arrived to find the doors locked and they couldn’t get inside.
While they waited for someone to arrive with a key, Tully volunteered to climb through the pet door and unlock the house for medics.
Tully is the grandson of a neighbor.
The medics were able to get the victim safely to the hospital.
Tully was honored with an official proclamation from the City of Xenia for his efforts.
