The Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA – Hesperia, CA) Board of Directors, along with CEO Nancie Goff, recently honored bus operator Jeanine Newman with an “Above and Beyond” award, after Newman assisted with a medical emergency that took place at the Victor Valley Transportation Center.

Newman was alerted of a male on the ground who was unresponsive. Immediately, she contacted 911 and realizing that the person had stopped breathing, began doing chest compressions. A Victorville deputy was the first responder to arrive and took over emergency care of the person. The paramedics arrived shortly and transported the individual to the hospital. Upon loading the male onto the gurney, he became responsive.

“Jeanine Newman’s prompt action in assisting an unresponsive person contributed to the individual becoming responsive when transported to the hospital. Therefore, in recognition of service above and beyond the call of duty, the VVTA Board of Directors has presented her with an award of appreciation,” according to a press release. “Thank you, Jeanine Newman, for your outstanding service.”
