Police have rescued a missing woman in Seredigian after a dog handler gave her “critical” first aid after the German Shepherd Dog handler saved her.
Two Dyfed-Powys police officers assisted a woman who severely cut her abdomen in her car.
The woman was reported missing at 19:15 (BTS) on Monday, November 2, and authorities are searching for her when she is found.
Chief Inspector Christina Fraser said “their actions at this time will no doubt save her life.”
Dog handlers PC Spencer Cooper and PC Michael Barnsley were alerted to her whereabouts after two of the four officers involved in the search and a family member were called to indicate her whereabouts.
She found the woman unconscious in her car and said officers quickly noticed blood stains on her clothes.
Ms Fraser said two officers lifted her out of the car and found she had a six-inch-deep wound on her abdomen “but she had no time to lose because she was losing blood so quickly”.
“PC Barnsley and Cooper began giving first aid to prevent bleeding, and this time their actions no doubt saved her life.”
“The officers found themselves in a very serious condition, and everyone worked as a team, although PC Barnsley and PC Cooper took great care in continuing first aid when the woman was conscious and outside, assuring her of assisting at all times.”
Paramedics arrived at the scene at 21:20 (BTS), and after stabilizing the woman she was rushed to the hospital by air ambulance.
“I must appreciate the commitment and professionalism of the officers at the scene, they provided first aid and were associated with ambulance control to ensure a positive outcome,” Ms Fraser said.
The woman understood that the situation was stable.
