STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WAOW)-- After less than a year as a police officer, Josh McLouth was given the Life-Saving Award. 

On November 22, Officer McLouth responded to a call of an unresponsive male at the Stevens Point YMCA. He took over where employees and visitors had begun CPR and the man was taken to the hospital alive.

"I was able to give someone their family member back. I was able to give this man another Thanksgiving, and I think that is the most important thing. That's what the award means to me," Officer McLouth said.

He credits the efforts made to revive the man by those before he arrived with helping save the mans' life.
