Another Off Duty Save
A drowning child saved by an off-duty sergeant:
- An off-duty Chicago police officer saved a young boy’s life at a suburban pool party on Saturday, fire officials confirmed.
Emergency personnel from the Orland Fire Protection District responded to a home on Steeplechase Parkway in Orland Park at around 6 p.m. for calls of a young boy drowning, according to a release.
The boy, between the ages of 10 and 12, was in full cardiac arrest, authorities said.
When emergency responders arrived, officials said the boy was conscious and breathing thanks to the quick-thinking actions of a guest at the pool party, who happened to be an off-duty Chicago police officer who had emergency training.
