Delta County Sheriff Gary Ballweg, right, presents Sheriff Deputy Kevin Chmurynski with a “Life Saving Award” medal during a recent Delta County Board of Commissioners meeting. Chmurynski was recognized for his actions from April 24, where he saved a woman’s life. He was dispatched to a call where he found the woman had no pulse and was not breathing. When an automated external defibrillator (AED) did not shock the victim, he tried giving her chest compressions, ultimately reviving her.
