Detective David Tuck received the Heroic Achievement Award for his brave actions while on vacation in Arizona.

A Sarasota County detective received a Heroic Achievement Award for saving a man’s life while vacationing in Arizona. Sheriff Tom Knight presented Detective David Tuck with the award recently for his efforts on July 15 while on vacation in Glendale, Arizona.

According to a press release: Tuck and his family were enjoying the day swimming in the pool when they heard a loud scream from a nearby residence. As they looked around to see where the noise was coming from, they observed dark billowing smoke in the sky.

Tuck quickly exited the pool and ran towards the neighboring residence engulfed in flames, to make sure everyone made it to safety. Upon his arrival, the homeowner advised her father was still inside and unable to exit due to being oxygen-dependent.

Without hesitation, Tuck entered the burning home, risking his life to save the stranger. He heard the voice of a younger male in the back of the house attempting to bring the trapped man to safety. Through combined efforts, Tuck and the good Samaritan were able to remove the man from the home as explosions began to occur due to the growing fire.

The three men still found themselves in danger as the fire grew more intense, ultimately trapping them in the back yard surrounded by a six-foot-high block fence. They used a lawn chair to lift the man along with his oxygen tank over the fence, finally reaching safety.

During a ceremony in the fall, the Glendale Fire Department recognized Tuck and all who helped during this terrifying incident.

“If not for Detective Tuck’s bravery,” Knight said, “(that man) would have not likely have survived.”
