Police/SAMC security officer commended

SAMC security officer Bryan Parks, who also works with the Hartford BrianParks310x153 Police department, recently responded to a report of an elderly, handicapped Hartford man that had driven his electric wheelchair into a pond. Parks quickly removed his boots, duty belt and vest and jumped into the pond to rescue the man before he drowned. The above photo of Parks was taken as the pond incident came to a close. SAMC thanks officer Parks for going the extra mile to save this man's life. We are proud to have you on our team.
