Sgt. Powell
Sergeant David Powell
Troop C - Tampa

Congratulations to Sergeant David Powell for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for June 2008, for his quick life-saving actions.

On June 3, 2008, while Sgt. Powell was working off-duty in Lakeland, he observed night managers carrying a female employee who had passed out while working. While waiting for EMS to arrive, he noticed that the female victim had stopped breathing. When Sgt. Powell discovered that she no longer had a pulse, he quickly began CPR. After he performed several rescue breaths and chest compressions, the victim began to breathe on her own. Sgt. Powell remained with the victim until the paramedics arrived to transport her to the hospital.

Sgt. Powell acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol, and is commended for his prudent actions and congratulated for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for June 2008.
