Compensation claims for an injury sustained in an accident at a quarry will need the assistance of an Injury Lawyer in Surrey Heath
The local district of Surrey Heath is situated in the county of Surrey in England and the majority of the area is inside the Metropolitan Green Belt. The district was the site of an incident where a police officer stopped a man, who was believed to have been suicidal, from falling into a quarry.
At May 15 last year at the quarry in Woldingham, Police Constable Ben Dove, was looking for a man who was reported to be missing and had committed acts of self-harm in the past. Police tracked his car to the quarry at Woldingham and PC Dove was one of a number of officers who was deployed to look for the man in the woods near the quarry.
PC Dove found the man after a National Police Air support helicopter had located the man who was sitting on the quarry edge. Surrey Police stated that the young man had placed his possessions beside him which was a serious intention that he would jump into the quarry. They added that PC Dove made the decision to come forward, grab the young man and pull him back from the edge of the quarry. He then led the man back to safety without causing injury to the man. Surrey Police said that PC Dove risked his own safety by this action and are very proud of the decisive action that he took.
PC Dove was presented with an award of a Chief Constable’s Commendation at the National Police Bravery Awards for his brave actions at an awards ceremony at Downing Street. The Chief Constable, Lynne Owens, said in regards to PC Dove that this award recognises officers who go above and beyond their duty to keep the public safe while putting themselves at risk.
