February 23, 2017: Special MCSO Press Release


Sheriff Doug Schuster presented members of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Waterways deputies with “Lifesaving Awards” on Tuesday, February 21st, during the board of supervisors meeting in Kingman.  Undersheriff Ed Trafecanty, Deputy Kyler Cox and Volunteer Boating Safety Officer Vincent Beltran were awarded with these prestigious awards stemming from an accident on Lake Havasu last September where an 18-month-old girl was rescued from a capsized boat.  The arriving team located, rescued and initiated CPR on the girl.  The girl has fully recovered since that horrific day.
