Ohio Officer Saves Teen from Drowning

June 06, 2011  | 

A Kent Police Department Patrolman made a snap decision and saved a teen from drowning in the Cuyahoga River.

Saturday evening, Officer Jim Ennemoser heard an emergency call for the fire department over the scanner, and decided to head to the river himself. "I was coming down the path right here, I could hear people yelling to the people in the water to try and make it to shore," Ennemoser said, while pointing to the spot of the incident.

A teen was struggling in the water, going under, trying to swim, but he couldn't.

This is very humane and courageous of the officer. I'm glad he made the decision to go himself being he was already in the area instead of waiting for the fire department to arrive.
