DIXON – A Lee County Deputy was honored by the Sheriff’s Department for his actions in August that helped an Amboy man with a medical condition.  Sheriff John Simonton announced Thursday that back in the early morning hours of August 26th a man in front of a business in Amboy called 911 complaining of chest pains.  The Lee County Dispatcher knew that it would be some time before Amboy EMS could arrive, so she requested the closest Deputy available to respond.  Deputy Kylian Lally was just outside of Amboy and as he arrived to the scene he witnessed the man collapse.  He realized the man had stopped breathing and began performing CPR.  After two rounds of CPR the man regained consciousness before an Ambulance arrived and took him to a hospital.  Lally was a 2014 graduate of Dixon High School.
