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. 

So many life lessons to be learned in this video!
