Two year old rescued by Deputy Josh Orman


Cross County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call, today 11/13/13 approximately 1:26 p.m. of a 2 year old male child falling into a narrow hole on Sunset Drive in Wynne, AR.

There were two children playing outside and the male fell into a hole that was approximately 10 foot deep and only large enough in diameter for a slender person to barely fit.

Cross County Sheriff's Office, Wynne Police Department, Arkansas State Police and Wynne Fire Department immediately responded.

Decision was made to attach a rope to Cross County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Orman and lower him head first into the narrow 10 foot hole. Deputy Orman was able to grasp the wrist of the little boy and rescue him.  The Wynne Fire Department pulled Deputy Orman to the surface after he was able to make contact with the little boy.

Medical personnel was on the scene, examined the two year old and determined he was in good condition.

Wynne Street Department Director, Jerry Brewster was called and he sent a load of dirt and his personnel to the scene. Wynne Street Department personnel and State Trooper Robert Meyer filled in the hole.

Very Special Thanks to Deputy Josh Orman for his part in the rescue of this two year old boy.

Thanks to Jerry Brewster and his personnel, State Trooper Meyer, Wynne Police Department and Wynne Fire Department.

The initial 911 call came in at 1:26 p.m. The rescue and hole was filled in within 1 hour.

Again, thanks to everyone involved.
