A Sergeant of Police has been commended for his heroic act in saving the life of a 3 year old girl.
Detective Sergeant #381 Frankie Roberts received the accolade from Acting Commissioner of Police, Winston James at Police Headquarters on 18 September 2015, on the heels of a thank you letter from the grandfather of the little girl who praised the officer for being “an angel”.
The letter read in part: “your officer faced with a potential crisis, acted professionally and swiftly when he provided mouth to mouth resuscitation and brought back life to my granddaughter’s lifeless body… it is because of him I am able to continue to hug, kiss and say goodnight to her… I am able to do this because your officer was present when she was facing the biggest challenge of her short life. He acted selflessly and with a calmness only an Angel can display.”
The young girl’s unconscious body was recovered from a swimming pool after she accidentally fell in on 12 September 2015.
Acting Commissioner James applauded the heroic actions of Sgt. Roberts and encouraged him to continue the good works.
