NASHUA - One helped stop a man from bleeding to death, another performed CPR on a driver trapped inside a car -- a total of six Nashua police officers were recognized for their lifesaving efforts in 2015.
According to The Telegraph of Nashua, the officers will receive framed letters from the chief and get a bar added to their police uniforms indicating they have saved a life.
Those honored in 2015 include Officers Dave Elliott, Michael Kekejian, Brian Wornham, Alex Gangi, Frank Lombardi and Kevin Delaney.
Elliott was recognized for providing first aid to an intoxicated man who'd cut himself in what turned out to be a cut to his artery.
