The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors honored a county employee this week for his heroic actions during the Las Vegas shooting in October.

Maricopa County Public Defender Attorney Jamie Jackson was at a music festival in Las Vegas with his wife, when a gunman opened fire on the crowd.

Jackson said he and his wife dove for cover, and that’s when he saw a young woman with a boot soaked in blood. He asked if anyone had a belt and when someone handed one to him, he used it as a tourniquet to help control the bleeding.

He then picked her up and delivered her to an off-duty police officer who put her in a taxi to the hospital.
