Sergeant Denny Gallaway drowned while attempting to rescue a man from the Trinity River.

The man, a U.S. Marine Corps service member who had just returned from serving in Iraq, had attempted to rescue a woman and child from the river when he too became caught in its current.

Upon arriving at the scene, Sergeant Gallaway immediately entered the water in an attempt to save the man. Both Sergeant Gallaway and the man became caught in debris and the rough currents and drowned. The woman and child were rescued.

Sergeant Gallaway had served with the San Jacinto County Constable's Office for 11 years. He is survived by his wife and three sons.
