Colonel Ron Replogle, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, congratulated 32 employees that were honored at the Patrol’s annual awards and The MASTERS banquet on April 14, 2012 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center in Columbia, MO. One of those saluted with a 2011 Lifesaving Award was Troop I Corporal Kyle D. Wilmont of Salem. On December 31, 2011, Corporal Kyle D. Wilmont overheard radio traffic from the Salem Police Department regarding a suicidal subject. He immediately responded to the residence to provide assistance. Upon arriving, Corporal Wilmont and Salem Police Officer Joe Chase entered the home and found a man, wearing only a pair of shorts and covered in blood, lying face down in the hallway. After seeing the officers, the man got up and ran into a bedroom and jumped onto an unconscious female lying on the bed. Corporal Wilmont observed blood squirting from a large hole in the man's neck. When the two officers attempted to calm the man, he became combative, striking and kicking the officers. The two officers were able to gain control and Corporal Wilmont recognized the wound was spewing blood with each heart beat. Corporal Wilmont applied pressure to the man's neck believing his carotid artery had been cut. Corporal Wilmont was able to calm the man somewhat by talking to him. When emergency medical personnel arrived, the subject again became combative. Corporal Wilmont maintained control of the subject and kept pressure on the artery, so he could be assessed. When the man went into cardiac arrest, medical personnel worked to stabilize him. At this time, the female subject regained consciousness and became extremely aggressive. She spit on the officers and kicked Corporal Wilmont as he assisted the medical personnel. Once medical personnel took over the care of the male subject, Corporal Wilmont was able to restrain the female and take her into custody. The man was transported to an area hospital and then flown to a trauma center in St. Louis. He survived the incident. The female was taken to a local hospital where she recovered fully from a drug overdose.
