Big Sandy Police Officers, Asa Swaner and John McQueen, were given the "Life Saving Award" by both the American Police Hall of Fame and the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization.

Swaner and McQeen earned the award after pulling a man out of a burning truck back in November.

Friends and family say the two officers are heroes.  The officers say it's just part of what they do.

Jake Drennan is the man officer Swaner and McQueen helped out of the burning truck. Both he and his young daughter were in the truck when it crashed. A passerby pulled the baby out.

Drennan made it out with a broken leg. Both are doing fine with no problems from the accident.
