Life-saver Keith honoured by police chief

Hoole’s Police Community Support Officer Keith Bartlett has received recognition for his heroics.

Keith was given the Chief Constable’s Commendation after saving a man’s life on City Road last year. Noticing that the 42-year-old man wasn’t breathing, Keith called for an ambulance and started CPR. Within a minute, the man began breathing and when the paramedics arrived they said his swift actions had saved the man’s life.

Keith said: “When I saw him lying on the ground, I didn’t hesitate to go over and help. As soon as I heard him let out a big gasp of air I was so relieved and happy.”

Keith was presented with the award by the acting Chief Constable of Cheshire Janette McCormick at a ceremony at HQ in Winsford.
