Andrew McNulty Receives Sheriff's Commendation
Issued 8/28/12 by John Schulz, Public Information Officer
Berthoud resident Andrew McNulty has been awarded a Larimer County Sheriff's Office Commendation by Sheriff Justin Smith for his actions in assisting a lost resident.
On June 1, 2012 the Larimer County Sheriff's Office was notified by Mr. McNulty, who was hiking on Storm Mountain, that he heard a woman screaming for help. The woman, a lost resident, had originally been able to contact Loveland Police but shortly thereafter lost cell reception.
Mr. McNulty remained on scene providing directions for search and rescue personnel for over two and a half hours and communicating with the lost woman and convincing her to remain where she was as help was on the way. Subsequently the woman was found and returned home.
Sheriff Justin Smith said, "Mr. McNulty is to be commended for his selflessness in willing to spend so much time in assisting a total stranger."
