Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down

UP: To West Virginia State Police Cpl. C.J. Weekley of the Parkersburg detachment whose quick action Tuesday prevented a Wood County resident from hanging himself. Weekley was called to a domestic incident in Walker about 11 p.m. According to Weekely's report, when he arrived at the home, he found two women with visible injuries and in a near state of panic. One of the women told Weekley that her son was in a back bedroom and needed help. Weekley forced himself into the room and found a man hanging from a rod in a closet and near death. Weekley cut the two-inch wide military-style belt the man was using and was eventually able to revive the victim. Congratulations to Cpl. Weekley for his quick action and letting his training and professionalism pay off to save this man's life.
