Lifesaving effort awarded

Fri, October 27, 2017

The public-facing nature of our work means that Armourguard team members get to see all sides of people's lives – from the fun, to the unfortunate.

This year alone, several lives have been saved thanks to our people's actions.  One such incident resulted in Auckland-based Security Officer Adele Tuhega winning Highly Commended at the NZ Security Industry Awards in August this year – achieving a standing ovation from the award attendees in the process.

Adele's instinctive actions and quick response saved a young woman from committing suicide.  Adele, who provides security services at an Auckland train station, realised the woman was going to jump in front of a train.

She quickly restrained the woman, who tried to struggle free and follow through with the suicide attempt. After the incident Adele took her away from the platform and consoled her until emergency services arrived.

The following week the young woman’s mother could not stop calling and thanking Adele for her courageous actions in saving her daughter's life, calling Adele her daughter's guardian angel.
