VIDEO: Maryland Officer Has Saved Two Stabbing Victims with Issued Trauma Kit

On Tuesday night Prince George's County (Md.) Police Officer Michael Risher was called to a condominiums complex in Beltsville. A 14-year old boy had been stabbed.

"I could tell that his injuries were very severe by the amount of blood that was already on his clothes and around him," Officer Risher said.

This is the second time in the last two months that Officer Risher has had to use his medical kit on the scene. The first emergency was a domestic incident in July. Officer Risher said a woman had been stabbed, WJLA TV reports.

Police have not released the teen's identity but say he had successful surgery on his back and is expected to be released from the hospital.
