Home Team Hero

Usually the photographers at WEEK shoot the home team hero segment. Today, Doug Smith proved to be a hero himself.

Doug was covering the Judy Baar Topinka news conference. On his way out he noticed a woman in a car who wasn't moving. He ran and notified a hospital employee who notified emergency personnel.

Sources tell me it turns out she was in diabetic shock and if she ended up sitting in that hot car another 15 minutes, she would have died.

Let's salute Doug for a) being observant, and b) acting quickly.
