An Iredell County deputy is being praised after reportedly going the extra mile to help a stranded driver.
Steve Morris posted on Facebook that after a hectic morning, his wife had locked her keys and phone inside her van.
“She was fortunately parked in a gas station where Deputy Cashion was stopped on his way back to his duty station 2.5 hours away,” according to the post. “He approached her noticing something wasn't right and helped.”
Morris said Deputy Brian Cashion gave his wife his cell phone so that she could call AAA and also gave her his AAA card so that they would come and unlock the van. The deputy then stayed her for the next 80 minutes it took for the service man to arrive.
"I couldn't leave someone like this, I wouldn't feel right about it,” Deputy Cashion told the couple. “I needed to make sure she was taken care of and safe before I could head on home."
“A huge thank you to Deputy Cashion for going way above and beyond, and further than most people ever will,” Morris said on Facebook. “And a Huge thank you to the Iredell County Sheriffs Office for having Deputies that care about normal people having a bad day. I hope the world gets to see this, I certainly cannot say thank you enough.”
