Craig Morgan to the rescue 

By Nancy Wilson

Craig Morgan may be known to most of us these days as a famous country singer, but did you know he's also trained as an EMT?   Yesterday morning, Craig and his band were heading back home after a gig in Texas when they came across a crash on  I-40 in Humphreys County involving three tractor trailers.   He and two crew members, Jerry Hines and Joey Greer, ran to the scene to help according to NewsChannel5. The singer helped emergency responders, extinguished a small fire, and cared for the drivers.

"He responded and did exactly what he had been taught to do and was a huge help," said Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis. "This is just another example of the kind of guy he is, he loves doing things for others."     Everyone involved in the accident had only minor injuries.    Read all about it here.   This isn’t the first time Craig helped those in need.    In February 2011, he saved two young children from a burning house.   This wasn't the first time Morgan has helped out in a time of crisis. Two years ago, he ran into a burning home to save two young girls.    A true hero!
