On June 20, four people were hit by a car and thrown down an embankment. 

Officer Frate climbed down the embankment and applied a tourniquet to one of the victims legs to stop the bleeding. 

The victim suffered severe injuries, but thanks to Officer Frate's actions, she is alive and slowly recovering from her injuries.
