DPD SWAT Officer Helps Save Man’s Life

Over the weekend, Senior Corporal Darian Loera #7956 was attending a ceremony in which his parents were being honored.  During the event, a colleague of the Catholic Diocese went into cardiac arrest.  Senior Corporal Loera immediately began chest compressions while a Registered Nurse, Magali Reynoso obtained an Automated External Defibrillator and they were able to render medical treatment until emergency personnel could arrive. Mr. Heflin is out of ICU and is recovering. This was an outstanding effort as Senior Corporal Loera continues to recover from multiple gunshot wounds sustained during an operation last November.  He forgot about his injuries and jumped into action to save another’s life. Great job Senior Corporal Loera!
