Details of the Recognition
Andy Perez Garcia, a truck driver for Waste Pro USA, heard screaming while on his service route in Miramar, FL in December and quickly jumped to investigate what was happening.
What Garcia found was a one-year-old boy named Bradley just pulled from a pool, unconscious, without a pulse, and in need of a miracle.
Garcia called 911 and gave CPR to the boy until rescue crews arrive and took over. Eventually, paramedics were able to restore the boy’s pulse. Bradley, who is now two-years-old, has fully recovered.
Earlier this month, Garcia was awarded a “Life Saving Award” from the city of Miramar for his heroic actions. “He showed dedication, selflessness and above all else, an eagerness to do what’s right. Andy’s co-workers aren’t surprised that he would jump to action like this, since Andy is just a wonderful person,” said Waste Pro Chairman and CEO John Jennings in a statement.
