Congratulations to Cst. Samantha McInnis, the recipient of the 2013 International Association of Women Police (IAWP) Medal of Valour Award! She was nominated by the AWLE after she received the AWLE Medal of Valour Award in 2012.
Samantha is a member of the Fredericton Police Force and was involved in the rescue of a 73 year old woman when her vehicle skidded off a slippery road and into the icy Saint John River. Samantha assisted in the rescue to get the woman to shore and performed CPR, despite being submerged in the ice and water herself. The woman made a full recovery after spending weeks in hospital in critical care.
A more detailed account of the rescue can be found on the website under the "Awards" tab.
