Trooper Saves Teenage Boy in Church
Congratulations to Trooper Sean Brammer for being selected as the recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for October 2003 based on his quick response and administration of CPR that saved the life of a fifteen year old boy.
While attending church services in Miramar last month, Trooper Brammer observed a teen-age boy collapse in his chair. He immediately responded and laid the boy on his back and checked for a pulse. Finding a faint pulse, Trooper Brammer attempted to revive him with smelling salts, but the boy did not respond. After finding no pulse, Trooper Brammer began CPR with the assistance of Marvelene Allen, a former dispatcher for the Miami Beach Police Department. During the second cycle of CPR, the boy began to breathe again. Soon after, Miramar Fire Rescue arrived to transport the teenager to Hollywood Memorial Hospital.
Trooper Sean Brammer acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol, and is hereby commended for his life saving actions! We sincerely thank him for his efforts–he is greatly appreciated!
