Guam - Several police officers were recognized for saving the life of a woman on August 6.  The officers along with civilian Adrian Nego were recognized by Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio at Adelup this morning.

Chief of Police Fred Bordallo said, "Actions like this you know I asked the precinct commander to evaluate the actions of officers a lot of them are proud because it's a mixture of both full time officers and civilian reserves that all responded that are part of the Agana Precinct."

The awards ranged from the Silver Star Life Saving Medal to a meritorious medal. As for Nego, he lives at the Oasis Apartment where the incident occurred. He rushed to help a woman who was screaming for help after trying attempting suicide.

"If people see other people in need of help don't be afraid to help them out you never know if there life might be in danger or anything," said Bordallo.
