Monroeville resident and Firelands Regional Medical Center X-ray technologist Elizabeth Downing received a citizen’s award from Perkins police Lt. Chris Hilton Nov. 1 at the temporary Township Hall on Bogart Road.

Downing received the award after helping Perkins police Officer Timothy Alexander Sr. perform life-saving techniques on a man parked by the UAW Hall on Ohio 4.

Even though the man died, Perkins police officials wanted to recognize Downing for stopping her car and attempting to save the man’s life by performing CPR.
