LP&L employee saves elderly woman

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock family is hailing one LP&L employee as a hero after they say he saved a woman's life.

Last Thursday, Chuck Barron says he was checking meters in the 6100 block of Louisville when he noticed a person lying down next to a grill. He used his binoculars to get a closer look and noticed it was an elderly woman who was shaking and trembling.

He says he called out to her and she responded, saying she could not get up and could not see.

"I ran to the front and I dropped everything," Barron says. "I climbed over the fence, and when I got to her she was laying there and you could tell she was in distress."

Barron says the woman told him she tripped over furniture on her patio and had been there overnight. He called her son and EMS who were able to get her to a hospital.

Officials at the hospital say she suffered a broken leg but is expected to be recover.
