DALLAS — A Dallas police officer, hospitalized for more than two weeks in Denver after suffering severe dehydration and blood clotting, arrived home via air ambulance Monday evening.
Officer Alex Garcia, 22, had been at Swedish Medical Center since July 8, when he became severely dehydrated at a Police Explorers conference and ended up in the intensive care unit with blood clots. He underwent three surgical procedures to remove the clots.
