Red Oak officers recognized after life saving efforts

RED OAK – The Red Oak Police Department isn’t just about taking calls that turn out bad. In fact, in some cases police officers are called to save lives. That lifesaving part of the job was put to the test last week in Red Oak on several occasions. Thanks to the quick action taken by Red Oak Lt. Richard Boone and Officer Michael Fitzgerald, a choking infant survived on Aug. 10. It was around 3 p.m., when the Northern Ellis Emergency Dispatch Center received a 9-1-1 call requesting medical assistance for the child. Fitzgerald arrived on the scene prior to the arrival of EMS and Fire to assist, and observed an infant who was conscious and breathing, but appeared to have something lodged in his throat. The officer tried to remove the lodged object from the infant’s throat, but without success. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
