Troopers receive Lifesaving Awards


Staff Writer

IRON MOUNTAIN – Thanks to the quick actions of three Michigan State Police troopers who responded to a medical incident at Lake Antoine Park last summer, a young Iron Mountain boy is alive and well today.

During a ceremony at the Iron Mountain Michigan State Police post on Thursday, troopers Michael Floriano, Kelsey Sipple, and Ryan Rossler received Lifesaving Awards from their assistant district commander for their roles in helping four-year-old Vincent Rose.

Rose was running a 106 degree fever and had suffered from a seizure while playing at Lake Antoine Park on July 14, 2013.

Troopers were first on scene and performed first aid to get Rose breathing again.

Lifesaving Awards are presented to members of the Michigan State Police who, through their direct actions, save a life.
