Ill. deputy credited with saving infant's life

By Jackie McPherson

JACKSON COUNTY, Ill. — An Alexander County deputy is credited with saving the life of an infant, after the car in which the baby was riding crashed into the Big Muddy River.

Four women and an infant received minor injuries in that crash, but officials believe it could have been much worse if Deputy Brandon Craig hadn't been there to help.

Craig was stationed in East Cape Girardeau Saturday night, observing drivers and making sure folks were obeying the speed limit.
