The people of Franklin, Tennessee have been experiencing snow and well-below-freezing temperatures. Last Friday around 9:30 a.m., enduring 12 degree weather, Keith Sheldon, a Williamson County photographer, was out taking photographs of the spectacle when he noticed a car that had been abandoned in the snow and ice. He went to take a photograph of the vehicle for the church, just in case any of the members could identify it when he noticed an elderly woman laying in the snow and ice just beyond the vehicle.

Sheldon called out to the woman, but she didnt notice him until he was upon her. He then called 911 and stayed with her until paramedics arrived. Much to their surprise, when they attempted to the lift the disoriented woman, they found that she was frozen to the ground.

WKRN reports:

Sheldon said the woman was lying on her side in a fetal position with her hands tucked into her sweater. She was also covering the bottom of her face, signs he said, told him she was very cold.

Turns out the woman, whose first name is Patricia, is 74 years old, suffers from a brain dysfunction, and had been missing for two days. She was treated for hypothermia at Williamson Medical Center and has since been released.

Patricias daughter wrote a letter thanking first responders noting that law enforcements reputation has taken a hit recently, but my faith in greater good and service of our officers has never waivered.

My personal note here would be that a citizen, Keith Sheldon, saved the day along with the paramedics. Im not sure that law enforcement officers had much, if anything, to do with it.

    Kind of like how God always gets all the credit and none of the blameguess as a society at large weve elevated law enforcement to near-deity status.

      Took the words out of my mouth, fellow rational human being.

    And rather than help her up and maybe get her into his warm vehicle, he just sat there and took a picture?

      Did you read the article? She was frozen to the ground. Lifting her would have torn her skin open.

        Well I would have done something other than taken a picture….and it looks as if she had a coat on. I would have found a way to get her off the ice while paramedics arrived.

          You do realize Sheldon did not notice her until after he took the picture. He did the right thing by calling the paramedics and staying with her until help arrived and as a result the women is still alive. I think your looking to blame someone out of pure spite of the fact it wasnt you who got to rescue the women and take all the credit.

    Thank God she was found when she was or she would have froze to death.
