Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents assisted in the rescue of a stroke victim, contributing to an effort which may have saved his life.
While patrolling in Sister Lake in Terrebonne Parish on September 16, Lieutenant Sammy Martin and Senior Agent Thomas Dewitt were alerted to a medical emergency on board a nearby oyster boat. The agents responded, and utilizing their training as certified medical First Responders, they assessed the victim, John Verdin of Houma, and suspected that he was suffering from a stroke. The agents determined that immediate advanced medical treatment was needed. Due to the remote location and the immediate need for medical care, the agents transferred Verdin to their patrol boat and rushed him to a dock in Dularge.

The emergency was communicated to members of the Dularge Fire Department and Acadian Ambulance's Air Med, who were standing by when the agents arrived with Verdin. He was flown to Chabert Medical Center for treatment, and is currently in stable condition.
