Good for You week of 10-9-08


Officer James Richards! Christopher See of Switzerland County EMS has nominated Vevay Town Policeman James Richards for this week’s “Good for You!” award.

Chris See writes: “I would like nominate Officer James Richards for the ‘Good for You’ award.

“While on duty on September 28th, Officer Richards rendered aid to an out of town motorist who had a choking infant in the car. Officer Richards called for EMS assistance, and immediately performed the Heimlich Maneuver.

“Upon EMS arrival, Officer Richards had already effectively cleared the infant’s airway of the obstruction. The infant was assessed by the SCEMS crew and did not require any further medical attention.

“Thanks to Officer Richards’ quick action, the infant was saved. For his quick thinking and effective actions, Officer Richards is a hero that deserves the recognition.”

Vevay Newspapers says “Good for You”, Officer James Richards. For being a caring resident of Switzerland County, you will be receiving a rose compliments of Edelweiss Florists in Vevay.
