Hero Officer Saves 6 Lives in Just 2 Hours in Separate Incidents
Aaron Franklin, who works for the Massillon Police Department in Ohio, was working on Monday when he got a call that there were five juveniles trapped in the Tuscarawas River.
A hero cop helped save six lives in just two hours.
Aaron Franklin, who works for the Massillon Police Department in Ohio, was working on Monday when he got a call that there were five juveniles trapped in a creek that flows into the Tuscarawas River.
After making his way to the river, he found two of the boys after jumping down an embankment.
“There were three more that had gotten swept by the current farther down the river,” Franklin told InsideEdition.com.
The fire department then arrived to help.
“We were able to get a life ring on the rope and rescue the first two. They were visibly upset and distraught that they didn’t know where their friends were,” Franklin said.
They were able to rescue the other boys trapped farther down the river from a tunnel soon after.
The boys were reunited with their family.
But less than an hour later, Franklin was called to the scene of a driver slumped over at his steering wheel in the middle of the road.
“I got up to the scene, rushed out of the car, I pulled him out of the vehicle,” Franklin said. “He had a faint pulse, but he was not breathing. I asked the bystander to bring the Narcan from my car."
The officer said he administered the shot and started chest compressions, and the man began to show stronger signs of life. He was then transported to the hospital.
Franklin insisted he is no hero. It's all in a day's work.
“I had the ability and I happened to be in the right place at the right time,” he said. “Anybody on any police department, I am sure, would do the exact same them being in that situation."
