"On February 21, 2023, there was an incident that occurred at the Downtown Plaza," Mr. Nevarez explains. 

“On February 21, 2023, Michael Mcleskey and I were approached by a distressed citizen. He was complaining about a possible heart attack. We then called 911, and waited for the ambulance and paramedics to arrive. During that time we tried to keep the distressed citizen calm.”

Mr. Nevarez informed me about what happened. I think it is important to recognize the quick thinking and teamwork that Moses and Michael displayed. It very well may have saved a life. Moses and Michael’s quick response brings great credit upon them, the Parks department, and the City of Las Cruces.
