Stonehill Police Chief Peter Carnes and Easton Fire Department Chief Kevin Partridge

While reading a book during lunch in the Roche Dining Commons earlier this semester, Stonehill Police Chief Peter Carnes felt something nudge him from behind. Turning around, he saw a student choking on a piece of food.

Moving swiftly, Carnes performed the Heimlich maneuver and successfully prevented the student from suffocating.

In recognition, Chief Kevin Partridge of the Easton Fire Department nominated Chief Carnes for an Easton Lions Club heroism award and presented him with the honor at the Easton Country Club on April 8.
