Carlee Lankharr and Everett Police Officer Andrew Schuck
Carlee Lankharr wasted no time. When she saw a teenage boy fall from a tall tree after being shocked by a power line Aug. 5, the Everett woman immediately started cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The 15-year-old was unconscious. She kept up CPR until Everett Police Officer Andrew Schuck arrived. They carefully moved the teen from an awkward position he was in under the tree, and Schuck took over CPR until paramedics arrived. At last, their efforts resulted in the boy’s pulse being detected. The teen has recovered from his fall and the electric shock, thanks to quick actions by Lankharr and the officer. Go to the next item.
