Two cops have been commended for their bravery after they rescued an unconscious woman from her smoke filled flat.
PCs Lyndsay Low and Louise McAllister were in their patrol car on their way to another call in May when a man flagged them down at Kincaidston.
Daniel Black told them he could hear his neighbour’s fire alarm going off and was worried something was wrong.
The cops immediately swung into Stonecrop Place and raced up to the top floor flat where they could smell smoke.
PCs Low and McAllister then forced their way into the flat with Daniel’s help.
PC Low explained: “We found the lady in the front lounge.
“She was unconscious and it was a while before we managed to wake her.”
While PC Low and Daniel tried to revive the woman, PC McAllister dashed to the kitchen and discovered a pan had been left on the hob and was smouldering badly.
PC McAllister quickly turned it off and returned to help PC Low and Daniel get the woman to safety.
Strathclyde Fire and Rescue stated that the woman would have lost her life if it hadn’t been for the brave and immediate actions of the two policewomen.
And because of their heroics, the two cops have been presented with the Chief Constable’s Commendation at Strathclyde Police’s bravery awards.
Chief Constable Campbell Corrigan presented the award to PC Low at the ceremony, which was held at the police training centre .
