Officers Honored For Saving 4 Including 1 Man Run Over By Boat

Ipswich, Mass – To serve and protect.

It’s not just a slogan.

Two police officers in Ipswich have been awarded for going above and beyond their call of duty for rescuing a man following a boating accident. 

Ipswich police Lt. Jonathan Hubbard and officer Brian Murphy received commendation after the duo responded to a boating distress call last summer. The officers arrived to find four people in the water who had been thrown from a boat and found the watercraft circling the water, unmanned. The driver suffered life-threatening injuries after ultimately being run over by the boat. 

The officers provided critical first aid at the scene as well as en route to land, which is credited for saving the young man whom authorities say could have otherwise died. 

The two officers were given medals by the Ipswich police department  honoring their lifesaving tactics and commendation letters from their Board of a Selectmen at the October Special Town Meeting.
