SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (KNSI) - On August 6th, 2012, three members of the Sauk Rapids Police Department responded to a medical emergency call - a man who had collapsed and stopped breathing due to cardiac arrest.
At Monday night's city council meeting, those three officers - Sergeant Tom Roy, and Officers Bryan Novak and Dave Rosenkrans - were presented with "'Life-Saving Awards" for their quick thinking.
Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise spoke, explaining how the men used a defribrillator and CPR to start Lynn Morgan's heart.
Beise shared a letter written by Morgan to the officers, thanking them for going "above and beyond the call of duty" to save his life."
"It's not often you get to give someone this award," Beise said. "It's a moment of great pride."
After the rescue, Morgan spent a week in the hospital. He has since fully recovered.
