"On Dec 4, 2013, two women, were travelling together in
Alliston, when one woman began experiencing medical distress and asked
her friend to drive her to the hospital. While en route, the driver
decided to expedite medical assistance and stopped at the Nottawasaga
OPP Detachment as her friendŐs condition began to rapidly deteriorate.
Provincial Constable Jason Fischer-Jenssen worked with paramedicŐs and
performed CPR to regain the womanŐs pulse and re-gain breathing."
"On Feb 27, 2013, PC Hargreaves was working temporarily in
the First Nation Territory of Pikangikum, Ontario when he responded to
a report of a missing woman last seen walking near a lake. PC
Hargreaves located the woman lying face down on the lake in snow,
approximately 200 metres from shore. Officers on snowmobile got
to the woman out on the lake where she was found unconsciousness. The
woman was taken to medical personnel and treated for hypothermia."
