Officers honored for going ‘Above and Beyond’
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- An off-duty Syracuse Police detective and multiple State Troopers are being honored for their help saving a woman’s life.
The group received the “Above and Beyond” award from Rural Metro Ambulance services. Detective Todd Hood was driving on the Thruway back in March when he noticed a car that had crashed into a guardrail. Hood and several State Troopers were able to revive the woman and help her get air before ambulance crews arrived.
"I don't think anyone would have driven past her that day. I think you see something like that on the side of the road, you could see that she needed help, so like I said, I was fortunate to be in a situation where I could help somebody else -- and everything worked out well and I'm thankful for that,” Detective Todd Hood said.
The award recognizes folks who work to ensure excellence in service to EMS patients.
