(Apple Valley)– Congratulations to Apple Valley Police Department’s Deputy Kent Watson, who was honored with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Lifesaving Award this week.
Deputy Watson received the award for his heroic efforts responding to a medical emergency on March 9, 2020.
According to AVPD, “Deputy Watson responded to a call of a man having a medical emergency and not breathing. Deputy Watson found him collapsed in the bathroom and leaning against the door. Watson was able to force the door open, lift the man, and move him to the living room where he was able to perform rescue breathing. Watson was able to provide life-preserving oxygen until Apple Valley Fire arrived. The man regained consciousness a short time later.”
Thank you, Deputy Watson!
