Sidney Police Chief Will Balling and Sgt. Sean Martin presented the Lifesaving Award to James Davis last night.  Chief Balling showed the video from Martin's police cruiser as it approached an accident scene on St. Rte 29 near Lehman Catholic High School the night of August 2nd.  The vehicle was engulfed in flames when he arrived.  Martin told what happened that night, relaying that police were dispatched to the accident.  It was reported someone was trapped inside a burning vehicle. Martin stated, "As we pulled up, I could see the front end of the car was on fire."  "We immediately checked the car and learned there was no one in the car."  Police then learned from witnesses that the occupant had already been removed from the vehicle by Davis.
