CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) — Centerville Police is recognizing one of its officers who went above and beyond the call of duty.
In a Facebook post, they say Officer Austin Warden was at Norris Lake in Tennessee when he and his friends heard a woman screaming for help.
They rushed over to her boat, where they found her husband unresponsive in the lower cabin. The cabin had filled with carbon monoxide because of a faulty generator.
They were able to pull him to safely to the top deck of the boat. One of Officer Warden’s friends was a registered nurse and performed “life-saving measures” until crews could arrive on scene and take him to a local hospital.
