The Page County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) reports that their lifesaving award has been received by a county 9 year old.

On December 12, 9 year old Harleigh Luciano was traveling with her stepmother on Leakesville Road in Stanley.

The girl’s stepmother suffered a medical emergency but managed to pull the car to the side of the road before falling unconscious.

Harleigh was able to locate her stepmother’s phone and call 911 and give approximate location to emergency communication personnel.

Responding Officer Chase Vaughn was so impressed with Harleigh’s demeaner through the entire incident that he nominated her for the Department’s lifesaving award.

As Vaughn drove Harleigh to meet her father at the hospital she told him that she has Autism and that’s what makes her smart.

Page County Sheriff Chad Cubbage agreed that she is smart and awarded Harleigh the Page County Sheriff’s Department’s lifesaving award Jan. 11 for her calm demeaner during the ordeal.

Sheriff Cubbage added that there is no doubt that Harleigh saved her stepmother’s life with her actions.
