Entry Description

Gibson County – Trooper Chris Dyer and Oakland City Police Officer Mike Collins are being credited for saving the life of a 22-year-old Oakland City man.

On July 27, at approximately 4:30 a.m., Indiana State Police, Gibson County Sheriff’s Department and Oakland City Police responded to a domestic disturbance at 12245 East C.R. 100 South near Oakland City. Responding officers received information the male had punched a glass window and was bleeding severely from his arm. When Trooper Dyer and Officer Collins arrived they immediately noticed the male was losing a lot of blood and was going in and out of consciousness. Trooper Dyer and Officer Collins immediately applied a Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) and controlled the bleeding. The injured male was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville where he was originally listed in critical condition, but his condition has since improved.

“The quick actions of Trooper Dyer and Officer Collins and the use of the Combat Application Tourniquet likely saved the life of the 22-year-old Oakland City man,” said Lieutenant Brian Bailey, Commander of the Evansville Post.

The CAT was originally designed for the treatment of wounded soldiers while fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Indiana State Police at Evansville recently received training from the Evansville Police Department on the proper application of these life saving devices.
