Arizona Trooper Saved By Armed Citizen Speaks Out

posted on March 21, 2017

The Arizona state trooper whose life was saved by an armed citizen back in January recently spoke out about the incident.

Trooper Ed Andersson would likely have been beaten to death had concealed-carry permit holder Thomas Yoxall not shot Andersson’s attacker, and the trooper will be forever grateful. According to a recent feature at Azfamily.com, despite having his arm in a sling, Andersson still finds a way to embrace Yoxall each time they meet. In fact, the two have forged a bond.

“And not just [a bond] between me and him,” Andersson said. “But between my family and him, too.”

Andersson credits Yoxall’s quick, decisive action with giving him a future. “I get to see my grandkids grow up, my daughters get married eventually,” he said. “He did a fabulous thing.”
