Crisfield, MD- On Thursday June 6, 2013, Pfc. Hoover, Pfc. Daisey and Acting Corporal Crockett were able to save the life of a 65 year old local man.

 The Officers were initially dispatched by (PCO Smart) to the area of Fourth Street for a report of a person yelling for help. The Officers arrived on the scene in less than one minute and heard the screams for help coming from the Somers Cove Marina. They were able to locate a male subject in the water fighting for his life.

 The subject had been the victim of a previous stroke which impaired the movement of one of his arms.

Pfc. Hoover and Pfc. Daisey were able to keep him above water until A/Cpl. Crockett entered the water. They were then able to get him to safety.

The subject was later treated and released on the scene.
