Once Eckenrode arrived on the scene, he applied a department-issued tourniquet to Khan’s upper thigh in order to stop the severe bleeding.
Washington Twp. fire department paramedics then arrived and transported Khan to Kettering Medical Center.
At the hospital Khan’s tourniquet was removed and his leg “began bleeding profusely,” according to the citation.
There it was confirmed by the trauma surgeon’s report that the actions of officers Train and Eckenrode had been sustaining, and more importantly, had saved Khan’s life, according to the city.
Officers Train and Eckenrode, the citation said, “distinguished (themselves) and the Centerville Police Department by (their) outstanding act and accomplishment in the saving of a life.”
