A Tennessee deputy happened to be in the right place at the right time.
Maury County Deputy Adam Sisk drove up on a couple sleeping on a rural dirt road when he saw a rattlesnake slithering toward them, according to WFLA.
The deputy was in the area to respond to a call about a suspicious person. He parked his car and got out to warn the couple.
“Don’t move,” he warned the couple. “There’s a rattlesnake right next to you.”
The deputy then urged the couple to roll toward him, and they were able to safely move away from the venomous snake.
