Larian McMurray, Miller, Police Chief Scott Jones, Amite City Fire Chief Bruce Cutrer, and Denham Springs Fire Chief Melvin Wheat.

Denham Springs resident Betty Miller developed respiratory problems and car trouble on South Range Avenue just south of I-12 on Aug. 2. Police Cpl. Larian McMurray pushed the vehicle off the road and realized that the driver was “in distress with her breathing,” according to a letter of commendation.

Miller stopped breathing before an ambulance arrived. McMurray, Police Sgt. Paul Golmon, and Amite City Fireman Timothy Verberne, who happened to be passing, kept Miller alive on the side of the road with cardio-pulmonary resuscitation until local firemen arrived.

“Prior to Mrs. Miller’s transport to the hospital, her pulse and breathing were restored,” according to the commendation.

Miller, a widow who has lived in Denham Springs 35 years, said she had never been in such a situation before.

She thanked the policemen and firemen who saved her life, and all the others who “work for us every day.”

Fire Chief Melvin Wheat credited the rigorous training required of first responders.

“This is the product of that training,” Wheat said.

Police Chief Scott Jones said he was proud of his officers every day, and the Aug. 2 emergency shows why.
