Excellent effort all round. Great team work and a life saved. And they say "response officers never take anything home"..... These front line officers deserve the official recognition which I trust they will get.

This is the type of incident where good old fashioned common sense saves the day. This is what the public expect and deserve. No doubt somebody higher up the chain of command will not approve. All I can say is "Give that man a medal" Well at least a commendation. Duty calls and you responded in the traditional police way.
