STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - Two Stevens Point police officers are being recognized for saving a 15-year-old boy while he was trying to take his own life.

It happened Friday afternoon on the Clark Street bridge over the Wisconsin River.

According to Police Chief Kevin Ruder, the boy was unruly when he ran away from counselors – and he had climbed over a railing to jump into the river’s frigid waters.

Officer John Moss leaned over the rail and caught the teen – and officer Joe Kramer and the boy’s counselor helped get him back to the bridge deck.

Ruder said the youngster is now getting the help he needs, and the two officers will be honored at an upcoming meeting of the Stevens Point Common Council.
