Two lawmakers have been honored for their efforts to save lives during an incident last year, according to a recent Facebook post by the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department’s Fontana Station.
Last October, Fontana MPs Trevor Barkley and Matthew Izquierdo responded to a possible stab call in the Baldy Mountain area, according to a Facebook post. They found a trail of blood and pursued it for several miles on rugged terrain in heat over 85 degrees.
Barkley found the victim in a remote cabin and learned he had suffered a knife wound to the abdomen. Barkley and Izquierdo provided medical assistance to the victim, who was later taken to hospital.
For their actions, they were both awarded the Outstanding Service Award.
Barkley is still serving at Fontana Station, while Izquierdo is now at Yucaipa Station.
“Congratulations to both of you!” says in the Facebook post.
