Officer saves two in 10 minute span

Traverse City Police

Traverse City Police Officer Adam Gray is being recognized for saving the lives of two people in one night.

Officer Gray was dispatched to two separate situations Thursday night with just ten minutes in between each other.

Both those cases, two women could have lost their lives if it wasn't for him, fellow officers and even a community member.

The first incident involved a heroin overdose at the 1300 block off of Veterans Drive. Officer Gray administered a dose of the medication used with a drug overdose called Naloxone to an unresponsive 20-year-old woman.

Officer Gray then was dispatched moments later to another situation where he and someone in the community stopped a woman who police say, was about to jump over the bridge on 8th Street and Boardman.

Gray said the people who helped last night, deserve just as much credit.

"There's no doubt in my mind that officer Gray's actions saved two people's lives, so yes, that was something special," said Sgt. Erich Bohrer of the Traverse City Police Department.

"I don't think that I did anything any other officer wouldn't have done," said Officer Gray.

Officer Gray says you never really know what you're going to deal with each day so you have to be prepared and ready for anything.
