People come into your life for a reason. Castle Rock is better because of Nick Sanders.
Today, the Castle Rock Police Department presented Nick, Corporal Peterson and Officers Grega, Schuster, Gardner and McNairy with life-saving awards.
On May 7, 2020, a young teenager was attempting to jump from the I-25 overpass at MM182. While numerous people gathered around, Nick, with no hesitation for his own safety, climbed onto the exterior of the fence so he could grab the young lady. When our officers arrived on scene, they quickly worked together to bring her to safety.
"I just did it," Nick said. "It was the right thing to do."
Mr. Sanders' actions that day saved a young life, and for that, our community is eternally grateful.
