Wounded Forsyth County deputy continues recovery
Deputy Rush's statement “I am forever grateful to my family at the Sheriff's Office who helped pull me to safety, render first aid and neutralize the situation at the courthouse, all under the stress of active gunfire. Their actions certainly prevented further harm and damage to me and others. The cards, visitors and well wishes from friends and strangers have helped me overcome many obstacles I faced over the past several weeks and will keep me motivated while I focus on my recovery. The care I received from my co-workers, EMS and the medical staff at North Fulton Hospital has been exceptional. It was comforting to see the quick response from all the first responders and surrounding agencies who all helped manage this situation. I am anxious to get back to work as soon as I am healthy enough to return.”
