CCSO Deputy In The Spotlight

Kudos for Deputy Patrcia Villa continue to mount.

Here’s an editorial praising Deputy Villa for her recent lifesaving effort published in the Naples Daily News on Wednesday:

“Lifesaving effort ... deputy knew just what to do”

“Cheers for Collier County Sheriff’s Deputy Patricia Villa.”

“Villa, who used to teach first-aid classes for the American Red Cross, put those skills to optimum use the other day when responding to a call about a choking baby at a home in Golden Gate Estates.’’

“She worked on 9-month-old Avi Gomez, pounding his back repeatedly, until he choked up a piece of plastic.”

“Here is where we would say Villa deserves a gold star. But we’ll have to think of some other award. The piece of plastic that the baby choked on was a gold star.”

“Still, a very happy ending.”
