Wash. State Patrol Troopers Receive Awards For Life Saving Actions
December 10, 2017




Troopers receive awards. CLICK TO ENLARGE
(KING COUNTY, WA.) -- Two Washington State Patrol (WSP) troopers received awards Friday from WSP Chief John Batiste for their life saving efforts in the line of duty.

On November 23, 2016 just before 4:30 pm WSP Trooper Brian Gavin responded to a report of a person in possible distress, Northbound on Interstate 5 on the Ship Canal Bridge.

Once Gavin arrived he saw two men talking to a woman who had her legs dangling over the side of the bridge.

"He quickly realized this was a critical situation and immediate action was necessary so he signaled to the two males who he had determined were good Samaritans that he was going to pull the subject off of the railing," according to a WSP statement. "Trooper Gavin very quickly and in one motion was able to grab the individual under the arms and bring her back over the rail to safety."

A WSP Sergeant contacted the hospital and spoke with the 19-year old woman at length who indicated that if it weren't for Gavin’s intervention she would have jumped. She went on to say that Trooper Gavin treated her with respect and was very professional.

Another life saving event happened about 11:00 pm August 22, 2017. That's when WSP Trooper Chase Van Cleave responded to a report of a pedestrian on the South 144th St. overpass above the lanes of Nortbound Interstate 5.

Ironically, it was again a 19-year old woman and she was standing with both feet over the railing saying that she should jump.

A Tukwila, Washington Police Officer Mike Richardson was on the overpass talking to the young woman, attempting to get her to come back over the railing. WSP Trooper Van Cleave is a trained negotiator and was asked by Tukwila PD to contact the overpass to talk with the woman.

During the time it took Trooper Van Cleave to arrive at the overpass, officer Richardson had done "an outstanding job keeping the individual occupied by talking to her," said a WSP statemement about the incident.

When trooper Cleave arrived he was escorted near the woman by Officer Richardson and once there began talking with her and noticed her behavior was "getting more dangerous as she started a countdown to jump off the overpass."

Trooper Van Cleave was able to get her to stop that countdown and get her to bring one leg back over the railing. She asked about making a phone call and allowed Trooper Van Cleave to come close to give her his phone.

She took the phone and allowed Trooper Van Cleave to stay close at which time he was able to grab her and pull her over the railing to safety.

The woman, uninjured, was transported to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
