Officers and K-9 honored for saving a life

LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- Three officers and their K-9 companion Max were honored Tuesday night for saving a life near the Bashford Manor Shopping Center off of Bardstown Road.

The officers who work for the West Buechel Police Department with Max were given the Life Saving Award by city council members for saving the life of a woman who was trying to commit suicide. 

That woman ran and hid from officers behind the shopping center but the officers refused to give up. By deploying their police dog, they found the woman and saved her life.
