SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Chatham County Commission took a moment to honor the Savannah-Chatham Metro Sergeant that helped a runner cross the finish line during the Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon earlier this month.

The picture went viral after the runner fell about a half mile from the finish line. Sergeant John Cain rushed in, and supported him to the finish.

This story and photo have gone viral all over the country.

The runner, Robert McCoy, is already training for his next marathon.
