Person of the Week: Trooper David Skorka
This week’s Person of the Week is a Michigan State Police Trooper in Cadillac who received a Life-Saving Award.
Almost a year ago, Trooper David Skorka saved the life of a suicidal teen — and just last month, he received a Life-Saving award.
Upon arriving at the scene, Skorka — with the help of a family member — was able to save the teen and check for a pulse.
Shortly after, Skorka began to perform CPR until EMS arrived.
Once EMS was on scene, they attached their equipment and found a pulse. The teen was then taken to Munson Medical Center in Manistee where he began to breathe on his own.
For his quick action in a life or death situation, Trooper David Skorka receives this week’s title of Person of the Week.
