A Stanton law enforcement officer was recently given a “code save” award from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Service.
Sheriff Mike Unger was recognized for performing CPR on two separate occasions last year.
According to the NDHHS, these awards are given to individuals who assisted a patient in cardiac arrest which had a positive outcome. Nominations are made online by going to the NDHHS website.
According to a press release from Unger, he began chest compressions on a local man last October and was able to re-establish a pulse.
In another incident in November, Unger said he assisted with another man not breathing and performed CPR on him.
Unger is a member of the Pilger Fire & Rescue.
