Tuesday night during the Sulphur Springs City Council meeting, Police Chief Jay Sanders presented a Life Saver Ribbon to Officer Josh Shufeldt for his efforts in saving a life.
Shufeldt was working the late shift in October of 2015 when he responded to a call on Airport Road. When he arrived at the location, he found an adult male who had overdosed and was unconscious, unresponsive, no pulse, and not breathing. Shufeldt began chest compressions until Emergency Medical Services arrived. The man survived thanks to the officer’s response.
