Hero Cops Save Woman from Near Death

 

What:
Press Conference

When:
Tonight, May 31, 2001; at 8:30 PM

Where:
Hollenbeck Area Community Police Station,
2111 East 1st Street, Los Angeles, California

Who:
Florence Regina Rosenhaus; Hollenbeck Officers Custodio Ponce & Alonzo Ramirez

East Los Angeles - On Thursday, May 31, 2001, at 12:30 a.m., Hollenbeck Area patrol officers Custodio Ponce and Alonzo Ramirez were on routine patrol in the 1300 block of 1st Street in East Los Angeles. As they drove down 1st Street, they noticed a car stopped eastbound in the westbound lane blocking traffic. As they approached to investigate the mysterious circumstances, they saw Mrs. Florence Regina Rosenhaus, a female Caucasian, sitting in the car, apparently dazed.

Concerned for her safety, the officers attempted to revive Mrs. Rosenhaus, but she sat unresponsive and semi-comatose. Officers Ponce and Ramirez then realized Mrs. Rosenhaus was either under the influence of alcohol or possibly the victim of a Diabetic Insulin Shock Episode. The symptoms of drunkenness and diabetes insulin shock can be very similar. Officers looked for and located a Medic Alert tag which Mrs. Rosenhaus was wearing on her wrist, and confirmed their suspicions that Mrs. Rosenhaus was suffering and in desperate need of insulin.

Officers immediately summoned the Los Angeles Fire Department's Rescue Ambulance, which arrived and administered life-saving medical treatment. Mrs. Rosenhaus was then transported to White Memorial Hospital for treatment and released in good condition.

This Media Advisory was prepared by Public Information Officer Jason Lee, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
