POLICE officers who fought to save the life of a driver who had suffered heart failure, crashed into another car and a house, have been given national awards.
The three Isle of Wight officers learned today (Wednesday) that they were to be presented with Royal Humane Society resuscitation certificates, following an incident in April last year.
Although the victim — of Pulborough, West Sussex — died, PCs Neil Corby, Kirsty Dunn and Matthew Tasker, were praised for their efforts, which extended the man’s life for over 12 hours, giving family members the chance to see him and for him to say goodbye.
Dick Wilkinson, secretary of the Royal Humane Society said: "They fought a valiant battle to save him and richly deserve the awards they are to receive."

The police have taken a lot of flack in recent years, but when they're good, they are excellent.
