CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- We can't say THANK YOU enough to all the first responders out there, making sure everyone is safe in this record-setting snowstorm.

That includes a Triad soldier who carried a baby to safety in Hudson, NC during Sunday's storm. The guardsman is with the 883rd Engineer Company from Winston-Salem.

He is 27-year-old Sgt. Donovan McPherson. He's been a Guardsman for 11 years. He joined as a senior in high school. When not out being an American hero, Sgt. McPherson is a student at UNC Greensboro (UNCG).

The NC National Guard says the baby was sick and needed to get across town for medical help, and Sgt. McPherson was there to get the child to safety. They posted a photo of the event on Facebook, and it speaks for itself -- our first responders are incredible.

The NC National Guard says McPherson was also part of relief efforts during Hurricane Florence.
