Rosenberg works for Morrell and Morrell LP in Elk River. He saved a man’s life after coming upon an accident May 9 and using equipment on his semitrailer to flip a vehicle that was upside-down in a pond.

The driver, who had been pinned underwater inside the vehicle, survived. Rosenberg talked to him about 10 days after the accident.

Washington County Sheriff Bill Hutton said without Rosenberg’s assistance, the victim would have drowned.

“You took active measures to save the life of another person when the death of that person was imminent,” Hutton wrote to Rosenberg. “Thank you for your exemplary performance.”
