Life On The Beat - Life saving tourniquet
Officers Bryan Hirshman, Jack Lowe & Steven Toney—Just before midnight on 6/28/13, Officers Hirshman and Lowe responded to 2000 Block of North 5th Avenue in reference to a loud argument. A man was arguing with his wife in the backyard. After being locked out of the house, the subject punched through a plate glass window, causing two serious cuts near his left elbow. Due to the amount of blood coming from the wounds, Officer Lowe applied his Combat Tourniquet. Officer Toney arrived and applied a Tourniquet too. This action stopped the uncontrolled bleeding. The man was taken to surgery at Deaconess to repair the damage to his arm. The officers are commended for their quick action in saving this man’s life.
