Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster presented Life Saving awards to MCSO Deputies, from left, Ed Trafecanty, Vincent Beltran and Kyler Cox for their actions in saving an 18-month-old girl after a Sept. 24, 2016, boating accident at Lake Mead. It was “utter chaos” when the deputies arrived on the scene to learn the girl was trapped under the capsized boat, Schuster said. They had to lift the boat, find the girl and administer CPR before she was airlifted to a hospital in Las Vegas. The girl has fully recovered from the accident.
