Alliance Health Emergency room staff surprised the Ponca City Police shift squad meeting Friday afternoon to show their appreciation to Corporal Jason Ivers. Jeanne Stara and Dr. Chad Ross both emphasized that the victim of a May 5 stabbing would not be alive if it hadn’t been for Iver’s quick actions at the scene.
Ponca City Police Department’s Corporal Jason Ivers was recognized for his lifesaving efforts as he responded to a the stabbing call at approximately 11:45pm in the 900 block of North Pine Street. Stara and Ross both referred to Ivers as a Hero.
Ivers arrived on scene and held pressure on a serious stab wound that penetrated the 24 year old victim’s chest. The wound was an arterial bleed and Ivers knew exactly what to do.
Corporal Ivers, on behalf of our entire community, thank you for all you do!
