Police save stabbing victim's life
Police saved the life of a stabbing victim in Northeast Portland on Saturday by using emergency first aid.
The name of the victim was not immediately released. No suspect information was released, either.
According to police, at 5:06 p.m. on Nov. 15, North Precinct officers responded to a residence in the 4400 block of Northeast 91st Avenue on the report of a stabbing.
When the officers arrived, they located a male adult severely bleeding from a stab wound to one of his legs. The officers immediately applied a tourniquet to the injury and waited for medical personnel to respond to the scene.
The victim was transported to a Portland hospital, where doctors told the officers that the tourniquet saved his life.
The investigation is continuing.
