September 2011: Sgt. Kevin Furlong of the Milford (N.H.) Police Department answered a late-night home invasion robbery call on Oct. 4, 2009, and found inside the house an 11-year-old girl who had been slashed with a machete. Part of one foot had been cut off and her jaw was nearly sliced off her face. Furlong searched the house and found the girl's mother, deceased in her bed. Furlong and fellow officer Eric Wales tended to the girl. When she started to go into shock from both emotional trauma and blood loss, Furlong retrieved a solar blanket and covered her with it until an ambulance arrived. The four robbery and murder suspects were later apprehended. The girl recovered and is back in school.
