(Richmond, IN)--A Wayne County Sheriff’s Department employee is being credited today with saving a life. Patrolman James Allen knew that an elderly female was living alone with no family on Helm Road near Williamsburg. Allen went to her home to check on her and got no response when he knocked. He looked through a window and saw her lying unresponsive on the floor. Allen then entered the home and gave first aid until paramedics arrived. She has recovered. It was later determined that she had been lying on the floor for two days before Patrolman Allen found her.
