On Wednesday, in Hattiesburg, the American Red Cross of Mississippi presented  Master Sgt. David Blackwell with the American Red Cross Certificate of Merit.

This is the highest award given by the Red Cross to an individual or team of individuals who saves or sustains a life by using skills and knowledge learned in a training course.

Blackwell, a Mississippi Highway Patrolman, was off-duty working as a referee at a high school game when a fellow referee collapsed on the field showing no signs of life. Blackwell’s quick actions to provide chest compressions and rescue breaths, with assistance from bystanders, helped save the referee.
