When Rock County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Molter responded to a car accident, he found a person who had been ejected from the vehicle.
The Aug. 21 crash along Highway 213 south of Orfordville left the driver unresponsive and not breathing.
Molter gave the driver CPR until paramedics arrived. The driver was flown to Rockford Memorial Hospital and survived.
Molter was awarded Wednesday with the Certificate of Lifesaving Award during the Rock County Sheriff’s Office annual awards ceremony. Molter also was named Deputy of the Year for being a field training officer and is slotted to be an evidence technician.
The Janesville Police Department held its awards ceremony last week, honoring the Police Officer of the Year and Civilian Employee of the Year.
