Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputies Honored at Lifesaving Awards Ceremony Tuesday, June 5, 2012

On September 23, 2011, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Park Bureau Deputies Christopher Deaville, Glenn Jorian, and Charles Weathers responded to a call of a single traffic collision in Quartz Hill. At the scene they found a 23-year-old man had been thrown from his vehicle. The deputies rushed to assist and quickly determined the victim had no pulse and was not breathing.

Deputy Weathers, a trained emergency medical technician, took control and directed Deputies Jorian and Deaville to assist him with CPR. Deputy Jorian and Weathers and an off-duty nurse rolled the victim onto his back using a spine-stabilizing technique, while Deputy Deaville monitored the victim's pulse.

Deputy Weathers used a bag valve mask to apply rescue breaths while Deputy Jorian continued to stabilize the victim's spine. After determining the victim's chest was not rising properly, Deputy Weathers inserted a tube in the victim's mouth and throat to open his airway.

Paramedics arrived and allowed Deputy Weathers to continue his lifesaving efforts. The deputies then assisted paramedics in securing the victim for transport to a local hospital.

Although the victim sustained major life-altering injuries, including a broken neck, and his road to recovery will be long and arduous, the opportunity for him to recover is due to the professional efforts of these three deputies.

For their actions, Deputies Weathers, Jorian and Deaville were presented the Lifesaving Award.
