Good Endings

By Joelyn Hansen

The wonders of social media continue to amaze me. You never know what can happen.

A few weeks ago we honored Officer Shawn Williams with a Life-Saving award for his efforts in saving a man’s life. As the first to respond, Officer Williams found a man, unconscious and not breathing. He went into rescue mode and began CPR until paramedics arrived.

We posted about Officer Williams’ recognition on Facebook. The post found its way to the man’s wife. Up until this point, the IFPD really didn’t know what had become of the man or how he was doing.

But, luckily through social media, we were able to connect with him and his wife. We were able to find out how he was doing and she was able to find out who the officer was that saved her husband’s life.

What a great story, right? We think so. Nothing like ending a story on even better note!

I’ve posted a video of Officer Williams receiving his award. Feel free to take a look!
