Austintown police officer Chance Hanshaw is being recognized for his actions following a double shooting back in August.

Monday at an Austintown Trustees meeting, He received a rescue ribbon and his being credited with saving a mans life.

It was around 2:30 a.m. on August 21st, when Hanshaw found two gunshot victims lying outside a white cadillac on North Meridian Road.

Bodycam video captured the interaction.

You doing alright boss, can you breathe, you doing good?

"Lots of blood everywhere, their was an abundent amount of blood all over the road," Hanshaw said.

Am I shot? Yes sir, yes you are, just hang tight. I got you boss, I got you, just hang on.

The first victim was lying face down with three gunshot wounds to his back. Hanshaw cut his shirt off and applied chest seals to stop the bleeding.

I'm going to apply some chest seals for you ok, just hang tight.

The second victim was bleeding profusely after being shot multiple times in the leg.

"He was in and out of consciousness, even as we were working on him," Hanshaw said.

Get his leg, get his leg, where is a tournaquet, we need a tourniquet on his leg, we need a tourniquet on his leg right now.

Hanshaw was able to secure a tourniquet to slow down the bleeding and soon after, the Austintown Fire Department and paramedics took over.

Hanshaw says with such an intense situation, he simply let his training take over.

"Just trying to save a life, that's pretty much it, that's what I got in this job to do," Hanshaw said. "All I could think of was the training because I don't know, if I didn't have any of this training, I don't know what I would have done in that situation."

Only a select few Austintown officers have received a rescue ribbon in the last 30 years. Hanshaw says while he's proud his efforts helped both men survive, he does not want to be considered a hero.

"That's my job," Hanshaw said. "I'm not a hero. As much as everybody says that, I'm just doing my job, that is what I like to do and what I have a passion for."
