Lancaster City Officer Honored
By Bernard Harris, LancasterOnline
Lancaster city police Officer Ben Bradley was honored as a hero — both by his department and by a national organization — on Tuesday, but was quick to spread the credit.
It was Bradley who was the first to come to the aid of a heart attack victim on June 26. It was Bradley who gave Paul Smith, of the 500 block of First Street, the initial shock to his heart from an automated external defibrillator and gave him chest compressions until paramedics arrived. It was Bradley who probably saved Smith's life.
