Please join us in showing appreciation to CPL Hunady, CPL Garner, Deputy Pilkington, and Deputy Dinkins for their lifesaving response. All four officers were award the Lifesaver award, yesterday, June 21, 2018. On 6/9/18 at appx 1430, CPL John Garner, CPL Matt Hunady, DEP Stephanie Pilkington and DEP Josh Dinkins responded to a home in Spanish Fort for a welfare concern regarding suicide threats made by a 61 year old male who was heavily intoxicated. Upon arrival the subject had locked himself in a detached garage and was ranting incoherently. Attempts to have a dialog and to deescalate were unsuccessful. The Deputies heard a loud noise and the subject suddenly fell silent. Fearing that he had harmed himself, the Deputies forced entry via a window and the garage door to find the man hanging from a rope and unresponsive. They lifted and cut him down, noting no pulse or respiration, immediately began CPR. They continued the effort, taking turns doing rescue breathing and chest compression's for approximately 15 minutes until paramedics arrived and took over. The subject was transported by ambulance to Thomas Hospital and was later transferred to Baptist Hospital where he has made a full recovery. He returned to his home, 6/18/18.
