Sheriff’s Deputy Awarded for Saving Life with CPR and AED

To Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Ethan Moss, February 4th response to a 911 call was just part of the routine, but for homeowners, Tim and Roby Bush, Deputy Moss was a hero that day.  Upon finding Tim Bush unresponsive and not breathing, Deputy Moss immediately administered the automated external defibrillator (AED) and started CPR.  After just 2 minutes, Bush began breathing on his own and was transported to the hospital. The 54 year old has since been discharged from the Hospital and made a full recovery.  Deputy Moss received a Commendation award for saving the man’s life.

Deputy Moss, a four year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, husband and father of two boys, and United States Army veteran, is no stranger to saving lives. In July of 2015, Moss also saved a 62 year old man by administering an AED and CPR.

Law enforcement is often the first on scene to a medical emergency. Receiving CPR and first aid training and carrying an AED enables them to act quickly to save a life.  Deputy Moss was quick to apply his training to save a life; Mr. and Mrs. Bush couldn’t be more grateful.
