A Shawnee Police Officer on routine patrol likely saved a woman's life last week.
The department says, at 11:30 p.m. Friday, November 9th, Officer Justin Cobb was patrolling the area of the 7400 block of Martindale Road, in western Shawnee, when he noticed what he believed to be an unoccupied SUV on the side of the roadway.
Officer Cobb approached the blue SUV on foot. While looking at the stopped vehicle he noticed a woman in the backseat who appeared to be asleep. When attempts to wake the woman were unsuccessful, Officer Cobb opened the car door and found the female was unresponsive.
Johnson County Med-Act was called to the scene and through further investigation determined the woman was suffering from a suspected drug overdose. The woman was transported to a local medical center for treatment.
A statement released by the department says, "Officer Cobb's attentiveness to duty and quick action surely saved the victim's life. Needless to say, the Shawnee Police Department is very proud of Officer Cobb."
