WACO, TX. — A benefit took place on Saturday in honor of Riesel Police Chief Danny Krumnow. He was released from the hospital on Wednesday, November 6th after an accident nearly took his life. That accident took the life of Falls County K-9 Deputy Matt Jones while he and Chief Krumnow were assisting a vehicle on the side of Highway 6.

On Saturday, the community joined to give Chief Krumnow a helping hand as he continues to recover.

" I appreciate it, all the prayers and the support. Law enforcement is hard enough but when your get this much support,for every person here, I probably saw as many at the hospital," said Chief Krumnow.

The event included food, live music, raffles, auctions, activities and much more. However, the main goal, made clear by those who expressed their gratitude, that Chief Krumnow came back home to recover.
