While attempting to get a better view of a meter for the reading, Barron noticed a woman lying in her backyard. After making verbal contact with her, he realized she was in distress.
He tried the doors and gates, but found them all locked until he climbed her fence to reach her. He called EMS to have her transported to the hospital and treated.
"I hollered, 'Hello, are you ok?'" said Barron. "At first she didn't respond, and then I got louder, and then she said "I can't see," and so that's when my instincts kicked in."
For Barron, it was just a normal day of work on Louisville Drive, when he was having trouble reading a meter and looked further over the fence.
"And I just kind of zoomed in with my binoculars, and I noticed there was an elderly lady and she was kind of shaking and trembling," said Barron.
Barron uses binoculars to help read meters.
Thursday, they helped him see a woman, Lucye Prcin, in danger, in her backyard.
He ended up climbing the fence to reach the woman who had been stuck outside for more than 24 hours.
"The night before, she was checking on something, she tripped over the patio furniture and she couldn't get back up and she spent the night out there," said Barron.
After serving almost 13 years in the marine corps and two tours in Iraq, Barron says his training helped him. "This is only stuff you see on TV and stuff, but you know after a while, it's just like panic mode went away and just initiative kicked in," said Barron. "And I had to do what I needed to do you know to get her safe."
Barron says Prcin should thank her hard to read meter for him saving her.
"I guess I was at the right place at the right time," said Barron. "I'm just glad I was able to find her and pretty much glad I was having trouble with that meter otherwise I probably just would have kept going."
