MAURY COUNTY, Tenn.-- A Tennessee deputy saved a couple from a rattlesnake on Friday.

They were sleeping on a dirt road when a Maury County deputy noticed the venomous snake slithering around their heads.

His body camera was rolling as he approached them.

"Hey, guys, guys. There's a rattlesnake right next to you. Don't move," he told the pair.

Then he said: "Roll toward me. Roll toward me."

The couple was able to safely move away and ended up getting a ride home from the deputy.
