Man save woman from Hot Sulphur Springs sewage pond

A Littleton man is being hailed a hero after rescuing a woman from a pit of putrefaction in Hot Sulphur Springs.

College student Tanner Bishop heard screaming while near the Hot Sulphur Springs Post Office on Aug. 4, according to a press release from the Grand County Sheriff's Office.

Upon investigating, Bishop discovered a woman in the town's sewage pond.

The woman was attempting to retrieve her dog when she slipped into the pond and was unable to get traction on the pond's slick rubber liner.

Grand County Sheriff Rod Johnson presented Bishop with a Certificate of Appreciation for his "heroism, humanity and actions saving a life," the sheriff's office said.
