NM corrections officer to get medal of valor

Award is for stabilizing a neighbor's toddler until paramedics could arrive

Associated Press

LAS CRUCES — A corrections officer at the Southern New Mexico Correctional Facility will be honored with a medal of valor for his off-duty actions.

The state Corrections Department says Sgt. Mitchell Lamb will receive the medal during a ceremony on Monday. It's the department's second highest honor.

The department says that on Dec. 21, Lamb rushed to a neighbor's home where a toddler was accidentally hit by the family car. The toddler was seriously injured and Lamb was able to stabilize the boy until paramedics arrived.

Officials say the boy is recovering.
