Life Savers

Before I went into the City Council meeting today, I got to meet emergency physician Dr. Jeff Metzger and personally thank him for his heroic efforts. You may remember his name as one of the two SWAT team doctors that I mentioned last week that were on hand when Lt. Carlton Marshall was shot in a drug raid.

I was glad to see the City Council formally thank Dr. Metzger and Dr. Eastman for the fine work they did. Dr. Metzger did tell me that he was one of the doctors that helped the SWAT officers last year during a multiple shooting in Oak Cliff. He had his proclamation in hand, and I found him to be very modest even though he basically saved an irreplaceable officer that is trying to help the community.

Here is the official press release (pdf link).
