Colerain Township, Ohio — A Rumpke Waste & Recycling truck driver is being hailed as a hero after saving a puppy Wednesday morning.

According to a post on Rumpke Waste & Recycling’s Facebook page, driver Aaron Kinsel was servicing customers in Colerain Township, near Cincinnati, when he noticed movement from a discarded backpack.
