    Default Police Heroes

    Just saw this:

    Police officer drives car and does CPR at same time on toddler, saving his life | 7online.com


    A Red Hook police sergeant thought he was just pulling over a speeder; instead it turned out to be a frantic dad trying to get help for his son.

    The 22-month-old was having a medical emergency and the officer took quick action that saved the little boy's life.

    "Don't take for granted what you have, because it can be over in the blink of an eye," said Matt Morgan, a father.

    Those words of wisdom come from Columbia County teenager Matt Morgan after a harrowing experience nearly ended his son's life.

    On Monday, Morgan's 22-month-old boy, also named Matthew, suffered a seizure and collapsed. The 19-year-old grabbed the small lifeless body and jumped into his car. Speeding through the Dutchess County Village of Red Hook, Morgan and Police Sergeant Patrick Hildenbrand spotted each other at just about the same time.

    "I was going and then he hit his lights and then as soon as I seen that I stopped and I ran to his car. You get through traffic a lot faster," Morgan said.

    "He has a young boy in his hands and he's running at me, yelling at me, his son is not breathing. 'I think my son is dead, my son is not breathing,'" Hildenbrand said.

    What happened next is extraordinary. Morgan, now in the back seat of a police SUV held his son close to the partition and watched as the 35-year-old policeman drove to the hospital and performed CPR on the boy at the same time.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Lol, fair and balanced, @Beorn

    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    Compassionate police officer in Denver, CO responds to parents' plea for help with their out-of-control son with autism by talking the frustrated boy down and taking him out for a meal. They were 2 days from the father's payday and the kid was hungry which was making his behavior worse.

    Maybe not technically police, but a 29 year vet.

    The Canadian parliament's sergeant at arms, Kevin M. Vickers.

    I read somewhere that this is a publicity stunt to draw attention from the Emmett Township public safety officer charged with sexual conduct involving a 14 year old teenage relative.
