Troop D - Orlando

Congratulations to Trooper Eddie Moorer for being selected as recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for October 2002, based on his successful efforts in saving a man’s life.

On October 17, 2002, while on routine patrol on the East-West Expressway in Orlando, Trooper Eddie Moorer spotted a white Lincoln stopped in the median with the driver slumped over the wheel. When Trooper Moorer approached the vehicle, he found that the 72-year old male driver was unconscious. After gaining access to the locked vehicle, Trooper Moorer removed the man from his car with the help of an Orange County deputy, and immediately began CPR on the victim. Trooper Moorer’s use of a defibrillator on the victim saved his life. Paramedics then arrived on the scene and transported the man to a local hospital.

Trooper Eddie Moorer acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol and is hereby commended for his brave actions.
