On January 24, 2015, Police Officers Tahicia McCaskill and Oved Canas were called to Aitcheson Road in Beltsville for the report of a suicidal woman. The woman was bleeding profusely from a self-inflicted wound. Given the amount of blood loss, the officers knew immediate action was needed to save her life. The officers quickly grabbed their department-issued trauma kit from a cruiser and applied a tourniquet. They then talked with the woman to try to prevent her from going into shock. Arriving EMS units confirmed that the officers’ actions saved the woman’s life.
