Metro cop’s life-saving actions ‘only reason’ 17-year-old didn’t die
Officer Matthew Cammarn, a Metro Nashville police officer is being hailed a hero Tuesday after saving a teenager’s life. He said a bullet entered the young man’s upper thigh and went through the other side. “So I put the quick clot bandage around, trying to get both holes,” he explained. “Got the tourniquet out around his thigh and cranked it down.” In a letter of commendation, Captain John Narramore with the Nashville Fire Department said, “It was the opinion of all medical personnel involved that Officer Cammarn’s quick action and proper procedure was the only reason we had a patient rather a fatality.”
