🚔 We would like to take this opportunity to highlight two of our Putnam City Campus Police Officers who recently carried out a heroic deed while off duty. Officers Spencer and DeBelly were working out at a local gym when they noticed a female face down and unresponsive on gym equipment. Officer Spencer began to assess the situation and care for the female while Officer DeBelly retrieved medical equipment from Spencer's vehicle. While assessing and caring for the female, she stopped breathing and had no pulse. Officer Spencer immediately began life-saving CPR until paramedics arrived on the scene and transported her to the hospital. At last check, the female is alive and recovering.
We are beyond proud of Officer Spencer and Officer DeBelly for their heroic act to save this woman's life. Thank you for choosing Putnam City Schools, and for protecting our students, staff, campuses, and local community - on duty and off duty. 💙
