Thursday morning Corporal Kennita Champion helped an elderly woman who lay helpless inside of her residence.

Corporal Champion responded to the 100 block of West 36th Street regarding a call for a welfare check. Upon arrival, neighbors informed Corporal Champion that the victim did not respond when they attempted to contact her.

Corporal Champion knocked at the front door and called out to the victim. Corporal Champion walked around the residence and heard muffled, distressed sounds coming from within the residence. Corporal Champion immediately made entry through the front window and located the victim lying on the living room floor. Corporal Champion remained with the victim until EMS arrived and transported her to Saint Francis Hospital for treatment.
