HARRISONBURG -- An emergency dispatcher is being honored for his courageous effort to save an officer's life. When he received the call, he treated it like any other call.
Mark Monger received a phone call in January from a caller reporting a seizure. The man was going into cardiac arrest. That man was Lt. Bill Rice with the Shenandoah County Sheriff's Office. He gave instructions to the caller to give CPR.
Lt. Rice is alive and well today thanks to Monger. Monger said he was just doing his job.
"It's a good feeling when you can help somebody out who you actually know or know of and it's a good outcome. Just glad he was able to make it through his ordeal and able to be with us today," said Monter.
Lt. Rice said he doesn't remember that day at all. He said he felt like he had the flu prior to the attack.
