PERRY COUNTY Ky. (WYMT) - Perry County emergency crews responded to an overturned car in a creek on Saturday.

Perry County Sheriff’s Office Detective P. Campbell said when he arrived on the scene he did not expect the driver to be alive.

However, he said crews at the scene decided to remove the man from the car.

“This, friends, is a miracle of God and must be shared. The Lord put the right people in the right place at the right time. These people would have to make decisions that are in consideration of someone else and not of themselves,” said Campbell. “I am immensely proud of the paramedics/EMTs that came to the rescue, the dispatchers that handled the call with great professionalism, and the citizens who displayed concern for a neighbor. Simply warms my heart and gives me faith in humanity,” he added.
