Officer Award

An Everest Metro Police officer received some well-deserved recognition for doing what he would say was simply his job.

Ed Klein is described as a good officer who thinks well on his feet and stays calm in a crisis, and those traits are what helped him save a man's life last month.

At Schofield Enterprises a man was pinned underneath a large piece of equipment during an industrial accident.

When Officer Klein arrived on the scene he immediately took control of the situation by calming everyone down and safely getting the man out from underneath the equipment lying on top of him.

The Village of Weston presented Officer Klein with medal for his bravery and courage, officer Klein humbly took the award saying he was only doing his job.
