The Royal Grenada Police Force on Wednesday recognized and rewarded eleven local heroes.
A ceremony was held in recognition of the men’s selfless act on the September 20th, when the freak bus accident on the Carenage St. George’s occured.
The recognition ceremony was held at police headquarters, Fort George.
With the lives of 15 people at stake, the quick response of eleven divers, three of whom are police officers, did not go unnoticed by the RGPF and Corporate Grenada.
Nol Bethel, Akim Phillip, Adriel Persue, Terron Hazel, Jake Edmund, PC322 Haris Collier, PC 584 Matthew Felix and DC 909 Kevon Wickam were all presented with commendation plaques and certificates from the RGPF, for their act of humanity.
Acting Commissioner of Police Edvin Martin in expressing gratitude, termed their actions nothing short of miraculous.
The plaque contains the RGPFs’ motto inscribed in Latin but carrying the English meaning ‘bringing light out of darkness,’ was also presented to the three persons performing CPR.
