VIDEO: Off-duty Florida Officer Saves Woman from Bleeding Out

A birthday celebration at a downtown Fort Lauderdale nightclub earlier this month turned bloody when a bar patron slipped and cut an artery on her wrist with a broken beer bottle — a potentially deadly injury.

Off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officer Nick Rollins spotted the bleeding woman, who had her wrist elevated with a napkin over the wound, and sprang into action, reports the Sun Sentinel.

Recognizing how serious the cut to the artery was, he applied a tourniquet to Jenon Wehby's arm to help stop the bleeding.

"If he hadn't done what he did, my wife may not be here today," Jeremy Wehby said. "This could have shattered our world."

Jeremy Wehby joined police during roll call Wednesday to publicly show his gratitude to the officer who saved the life of his wife and mother to their four children, ages 6 to 12.
