Three troopers at the Iron Mountain State Police Post were presented with lifesaving awards on Thursday.
Troopers Mike Floriano, Kelsey Sipple, and Ryan Rossler were awarded after they saved a boy's life at Lake Antoine this past summer. Four-year-old Vincent Rose suffered a seizure on July 14 and was unresponsive. When the troopers arrived on scene, they administered back blows and CPR to establish an airway.
â??They braced his airway open so he started breathing, and they called the ambulance and they took care of him from the time they showed up to when the ambulance got there,â?? said Lee Rose, father of Vincent. â??His temperature was still 106.8 when the ambulance got there, but they were able to get him breathing again.â??
Vincent and his family were present at the ceremony to express their gratitude and thanks to the troopers who saved his life.
