The Cape Coral Police Department honored an Oasis Middle School student with the “Do The Right Thing” Lifesaving award. This is additionally the second time Christopher has received this award. Please join us in recognizing and congratulating him!
Christopher Leon, 8th Grade – Oasis Middle School
Christopher was a passenger in his mother’s car when she told him she was having trouble breathing. Something had caused her to go into anaphylactic shock.
She pulled over as her breathing difficulty increased, and Christopher tended to her until he recognized she was no longer breathing. Christopher quickly began CPR while waiting for emergency personnel to arrive. Christopher’s quick response and calmness under pressure likely saved his mother’s life.
Thank you to Christopher for being a shining example of what it means to “do the right thing.”

Mason Long 3th Grade – Caloosa Elementary School
Mason was able to assist his sister by making critical life-saving decisions while riding home on the bus. He heard his sister’s urgent medical alert and sprang into action. He immediately got in contact with his mother, gave his sister a snack and kept a watchful eye on her the rest of the ride home.
Romeo Nunez 5th Grade – Caloosa Elementary School
Romeo overheard a conversation that included details involving a person making statements they would bring a weapon to school and commit violence against the campus population. Romeo reported this to a trusted adult who advised the SRO, who in turn immediately began an investigation. The investigation revealed the person making the threats attended a school on Florida’s east coast, and the school SRO there was notified of the possibility of a weapon on their campus. Romeo’s action enhanced the CCPD SRO Unit’s ability to maintain the safety and security of Caloosa Elementary School and highlighted the valuable partnership between the school community and the Cape Coral Police Department.
Thank you to Mason and Romeo for being shining examples of what it means to “do the right thing.”

Joseph was at Eagle Skate Park and noticed a boy who was too scared to go down the big ramp on his bike. Joseph sat with the boy for half an hour encouraging him. The boy finally got the courage to go down the ramp. The smile on his face was beyond priceless.
Thank you to Emma and Joseph for being shining examples of what it means to “do the right thing.”
