WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Two teens in Williamson County were rewarded for their quick response in performing CPR to save their grandfather’s life. 

Riley and Faith Cox both received a Lifesaving Award and challenge coins from Williamson County EMS. In late November, their grandfather and former Williamson County Precinct 4 Commissioner Larry Madsen went into cardiac arrest. Faith called 911, and Riley performed chest compressions until paramedics arrived.
