MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen is honoring a Drug Enforcement Administration agent for rescuing a family from a burning truck in Memphis.

Cohen’s office says he awarded DEA Special Agent Harold Hurley with a Congressional Badge of Bravery on Monday.

According to Cohen’s office, Hurley saw a fire in the bed of a truck while driving to work on Dec. 2, 2013.

The female driver pulled over, and Hurley helped remove her four children from the burning truck. Hurley then returned to the vehicle and rescued the woman, as the truck became engulfed in flames.

Cohen, a Memphis Democrat, says Hurley went “above and beyond the call of duty” to rescue the family. Cohen’s office says Hurley currently lives in Macon, Georgia.
