CELINA, Ohio (WDTN) – A Celina police officer is being credited with saving a woman’s life.

Sergeant Kent Taylor was on foot patrol February 3 just before 11:00 p.m. in the 1100 block of Princeton Avenue.

The police chief says Taylor noticed something moving in a back yard of a home.

He found an 82-year-old woman who fell on a patch of ice and injured herself. No one could hear her cries for help.

Temperatures were below freezing, so police say the woman’s fate was dire had she not been discovered until the next day.

The woman told the officer she went outside to get her dog. Sgt. Taylor got the victim inside and called for medical help. She suffered a head injury and a broken arm, but should be fine.

The chief extended a commendation to the officer and credits him with saving the woman’s life.
