Three Recognized For Saving Life

KSAL StaffFebruary 14, 2019

Three people including a Kansas State Park Ranger, a Geary County Sheriff Deputy, and a first responder have been recognized for saving a life.

According to the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism, back on January 10th a 911 call was received from a Milford resident reporting an adult mail choking and turning blue. Tim Himelick, first responder from the City of Milford, arrived in minutes and started CPR. Clayton Swanson, Milford State Park ranger arrived and immediately assisted with CPR to give Himelick a break. Geary County Sheriff’s Department officer Cayla Da Giau also arrived and began assisting with CPR. The man was transferred to an area hospital where staff credited the three first responders with saving his life. He’s now back at college.

Swanson, Himelick and Da Giau were recognized for their actions by Milford Mayor Brad Roether and the Geary County Commission during a presentation ceremony. Roether praised the three for their swift response and life-saving actions.

Kansas state park rangers are fully commissioned Kansas law enforcement officers and often respond to and assist other law enforcement agencies with calls that are outside of typical Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism-related duties. This assistance can be especially crucial in the rural areas where many state park rangers are located.
