Four Los Angeles Airport Police officers were recognized Monday, February 12th, for their actions in saving the life of a traveler at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in January.
At 6:15 a.m. on January 5th, police officers Marlon Coronado, Gina Luttenegger, Charles Pierce and Brian G. Davis responded to an emergency radio call concerning an unconscious woman at the Terminal 6 sidewalk.
The officers collectively performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation manually on the traveler until the arrival of Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics, who used an automated external defibrillator.
The traveler was taken to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood, where she reportedly made a full recovery and was discharged a few weeks later.
Coronado and Luttenegger have served on the Airport Police force for two years, Davis for six years and Pierce for seven years.
All Airport Police officers are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, according to an Airport Police spokesman.
The Airport Police is a division of Los Angeles World Airports, the City of Los Angeles department that owns and operates four airports in Southern California.
