LACY LAKEVIEW, TX (KXXV) -

Four officers were honored at the Lacy Lakeview City Council meeting Tuesday night with lifesaving medals and certificates of appreciation.

In February, Lacy Lakeview Officer Casey Lander and Sergeant Amanda Leka preformed CPR and saved the life of a woman who was having a heart attack.

In August, Officer Lander who was assisted by TSTC PD Officer Marcus Woods and Sergeant Roman Proctor responded to a call on the I-35 overpass and saved the life of a suicidal woman attempting to jump from the bridge.
