On Jan. 26, an 18-year-old woman was stabbed 15 times and left for dead on the side of Deerfield Road in Bear Brook State Park.
When King arrived, he acted quickly to save the victim's life, using QuickClot to slow the bleeding, said Allenstown Police Chief Paul Paquette.
"It's not something you experience everyday, even as a police officer, but training and adrenaline kick in and you do what you've been trained to do," said King.
In addition, the two unnamed Good Samaritans who stopped to help the victim and call 911 were awarded similar accolades, as were Allenstown firefighter/EMTs Jeff Gardner and Heather Hill, Tri-Town Ambulance EMT Cassie McNelly and paramedic Dina Waldron.
