  • Pendleton man with an amputated leg reunites with rescuer from July car wreck

    In the early hours of July 4th, Ruth Greene of Pasco was the first to arrive at the scene of a car crash. Brian Zacharias had sustained major injuries, including a mangled left leg bleeding profusely. Ruth used a belt as a tourniquet and held on until the Emergency Medical Team loaded Brian into the ambulance. He lost his leg, but the Pendleton man credits Ruth with saving his life. The two met again in October.
