An area police officer has received a commendation for meritorious duty after he saved the life of a Belle Vernon woman last month.
Southwest Regional police Chief John D. Hartman said Lt. John Loughner received the commendation for saving a 50-year-old Belle Vernon woman at her Main Street residence.
According to Hartman, Loughner responded to a call shortly after 8 p.m. July 10 to check on the well being of the woman at her Main Street home.
When he arrived, Hartman said Loughner heard moaning and gurgling sounds coming from inside her residence but the door was locked.
Fearing for her safety, Loughner kicked in the door of the home and found the woman suffering from a medical condition on the floor of the home.

President Obama says he does not know all the facts but believes the police acted stupidly.
Many years ago I was dispatched to a call about a drunk passed out in a fast food place. He was a young guy, and I found an emergency alert bracelet on his wrist. I called for medical help and he was transported to a hospital. I thanked the young woman who had called and I told her she probably saved his life as he was in a diabetic coma.
Wow — what a good reminder of how something like a diabetic coma can be mistaken for public drunkenness. Kudos for your role in saving the guy’s life!
Thank you Finny. Your words mean a lot to me. Bless you too!
