I found this story on ADV in a thread about a motor-officer member who was run over twice by a schmuck who fled the scene. His injures included shattered pelvis and hips and upper arm. An off duty first responder administered initial life saving procedures and he was then airlifted to the hospital. It seems that none who saw him initially thought that he would make it.

A year later: Mike the motor officer is making a great recovery, and is back at work on light duty. There is some nerve damage in his left leg which is making gear shifting problematic, but it continues to improve. The perp was caught and sentenced to 15 yrs which included a guilty plea to attempted murder, this after the jury deadlocked on attempted murder of a peace officer .

Wow, what a story.

And a pic from the thread (I don't think it's Mike):

Good to hear he is doing so well.

Sad commentary on the jury. And only 15 years???? dopeslap
