Monmouth Police Officer Saves Woman Lost In Snowstorm
According to WMTW, Monmouth Police Department Sergeant Dana Wessling is being credited with saving the life of a woman lost in Sunday night's snowstorm.
The call came in at approximately 11 PM on Sunday (February 9th) evening, several hours after the woman had gone missing.
Wessling, along with a trainee, were driving along a road near the edge of town when they spotted tracks in the snow. At first, they thought they were looking at deer tracks, but decided to take a second look. It's a good thing they did. They followed the tracks and found the woman, crawling on her hands and knees, toward the woods.
When they found her, the woman, who was having a mental health crisis, was showing signs of hypothermia.
The woman's family took her to the hospital.
Police say they plan to check up on the woman later this week.
