(Audio) Lexington, NE – The Dawson County Sheriff’s Office awarded Deputy Aaron Pelzer for his actions and bravery in responding to a motor vehicle  accident on Tuesday,  July 9,   south of Cozad.

Sheriff Ken Moody says  Deputy Pelzer went above the call of duty…

Deputy Pelzer assisted two women in a flooded ditch 10 miles south of Cozad when their vehicle hit  flood water crossing the road and flipped, landing upside down. 

The 26-year-old female passenger was able to escape, but the driver, her mother,  46-year-old Shelly Masoner, of Eustis was trapped inside the 2006 Chevy Sedan. 

With Deputy Pelzer’s quick thinking and bravery, he was able to remove Masoner from the flipped, water-filled vehicle.  She and her daughter were transported to Cozad Community Hospital, but the 46-year-old died the next day. 

Deputy Pelzer was honored for his bravery in a tragic situation.
