Tribal members, staff receive Red Cross Life Saver Awards
Several Southern Ute tribal members and employees were among the locals honored for lifesaving actions at the American Red Cross Southwest Colorado Chapter’s Breakfast of Champions Wednesday, April 3.
Tribal member Lisa Burch Frost performed CPR on grandson Ethan Rock last July after he collapsed at the Sun Dance Grounds. After receiving further care from the Southern Ute Police Department and Los Pinos Fire Department, Rock was transported by air to Children’s Hospital in Aurora.
Also receiving Live Saver Awards during the organization’s fifth annual breakfast were Stephanie Hoselton and Jacob Posey, lifeguards at the SunUte Community Center, who resuscitated a swimmer in December 2012 after he nearly drowned during a military training regimen.
