BEND,OR -- The Oregon Police Officer Association has awarded Bend Police Officer Kyle Voll with its life saving award.
Officer Voll is the one who responded to the Central Oregon Irrigation District canal off of Purcell back in July.
A female was in the irrigation canal yelling for help.
Officer Voll was able to pull the female from the canal and onto the bank.
It was later determined the woman had dementia and had fallen into the water 200 yards upstream.
Officer Voll's actions prevented her from drowning.
