Marshall Coffey's grandson, Ryan Coffey, helped save his life Sunday.
The 12-year-old is so modest about it that he wouldn't answer questions or have his picture taken. His mother, Lisa Coffey, said that is just his way.
"I told him, 'You're an inspiration, you saved your grandfather,' but he just doesn't want to talk about it," she said.
Marshall Coffey, however, wasn't shy about his appreciation.
"He's great, he's always been my buddy anyway," he said. "He sticks with me."
Ryan Coffey had gone to spend the weekend with his grandfather in Russell Springs and the two were returning to Danville in a 1955 Ford Victoria.
