At the Chattanooga City Council, Hamilton County EMS Deputy Chief John Combes gave a special presentation about two Chattanooga police officers who responded to a possible drowning accident in May.

Police Sgts. Steve Wiertel and Andrew Peker gave immediate CPR to a 6-year-old child who was drowning in a swimming pool. Because of their excellent lifesaving skills, the child survived without any deficits.

"If it were not for these two officers, this could have had a very different outcome. In my opinion, these officers saved this child's life," Combes said.
