With all of the racially motivated riots and protests happening these days, bad news about police officers tends to get more media play. Occasionally good news floats to the top and shows a majority of police officers are great Americans who deserve our appreciation.
One of these officers comes out of Ohio and he just saved someones life at the scene of a terrible accident.

An officer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol was honored this week for saving a semi-truck drivers life back in April. Dashcam footage just released shows trooper Eric Devers arrive at the scene of a crash and immediately sprint toward the driver. The trooper found the man still belted into his seat. Shortly after, his eyes rolled back into his head and he stopped breathing, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Keep breathing! Devers can be heard shouting in the video. Dont you die! Dont you die on me! Come on!Since being posted on Facebook by the Ohio State Highway Patrol on Thursday, the footage has amassed more than 5 million views.
Devers received a Certificate of Recognition for his actions on Thursday. The driver ultimately made a full recovery after being transported to the hospital.
