#403136 Sandy Township police officers commended for ‘heroic efforts’ saving m

DuBOIS — Three Sandy Township police officers were commended at Monday’s supervisors’ meeting for their heroic efforts when a man dove into a freezing lake and they saved him.

At 12:09 a.m. March 12, the police department received a call from a resident who lives at 155 Woolendean Road, in Treasure Lake, Chief Don Routch said. She said that her son, Justin Wagner, had just been involved in a physical fight with his girlfriend. She stated that Wagner had left the residence on foot and said he was going to kill himself. She gave officers a description of her son, Routch said.

Officers responded to the area and encountered a man who was standing at the lake’s edge by the Lakeview Lodge and the breast of the lake.

Sgt. Kris Kruzelak, Officer Ken Kiehlmeier and Officer Jesse Cole walked down to the man, asked if he was Wagner, and he confirmed he was. In speaking to Wagner, he indicated that he was planning to kill himself by jumping into the lake and drowning. He also indicate that he had been in an altercation with his girlfriend, Routch said.

The officers spoke to Wagner for about 30 to 40 minutes to move away from the water as the temperature was 14 degrees F and that they could get him some help or talk in the patrol car, Routch said. While the officer was negotiating with Wagner, he stated numerous times that he was going to jump into the lake. Officers requested assistance from DuBois City Police and requested EMS and Sandy Township Fire Department water rescue.

Wagner then turned from the officers and ran into the lake and dove in, Routch said. All officers then immediately reacted and chased Wagner into the water, due to a drop of approximately 25 feet from the shore Wagner was fully submerged under water.

Cole reached out and due to the drop off also was submerged under water. Kruzelak and Kiehlmeier were trying to tread water and were able to grab Cole and pull him to where they could touch, Routch said. Cole was able to grab Wagner by the hood of his coat where he was pulled closer to shore. Wagner did resist while being pulled into the shore, he also resisted briefly at the shore where he finally conceded and stated, “I give up, I’m done.”

Wagner was taken into custody and custody was immediately transferred to paramedics for treatment. All officers had to immediately receive medical treatment for hypothermia and were transported to Penn Highlands Emergency Room along with Wagner, Routch said.

Wagner’s girlfriend was taken to Penn Highlands for injuries to her face, she was treated and release. She stated to officers at the hospital that she and Wagner were in her vehicle when he engaged her in an argument. She stated that Wagner slapped her with an open hand in the car. They then arrived at the residence on Wollendean where the argument continued with Wagner slapping her a couple more times. Officer Goodman did observe an injury to her lip and also on her cheek. Tellerico was unsure of how many times she was struck. She did state that he did strike him in self defense to get him off of her.

The officers that were involved sustained injuries and damage to equipment. Damage to equipment were three tasers, three portable radios, flashlights and officers’ uniform. An estimate for these damages will easily exceed $5,000, Routch said.

I just wanted to make the supervisors aware of that and these guys risked their own safety by pulling this guy up out of there,” Routch said. “I think it was pretty heroic for what they did and I just wanted to make you aware of it.”

Manager Dave Monella also commended the officers along with the fire department and rescue team.

“Everybody, as far as I’m concerned, did what they had to do that evening,” Monella said. “I had the opportunity to talk to Sgt. Kruzelak the Monday after that and a lot of things were going through his head, did he make the right calls, could it have been different? We could armchair quarterback all we want, it was a split-second decision. It was an at-the-moment kind of thing that these guys had to do. My hat is off to every one of the people that were, unfortunately, participants in that whole situation. It was 17 degrees out that night. It was cold.”

Supervisor Andy Shenkle said it’s really impressive how the officers react and perform their jobs in the township.

“It’s just remarkable,” Shenkle said.

The rest of the supervisors echoed Monella’s and Shenkle’s sentiments.

Today my hubby baked a pizza. Since I had PT, my shoulder is throbbing, & makes me not want to eat, but I did eat 1 piece. Good movement in my shoulder today, not tight like last week.

National Record Mart was the big hang out at the mall. I still have some of my original albums from there.
