SOUTH BEND, Indiana — Acting on instinct and training, South Bend police officer Sarah Janis climbed into an upside-down sedan that just crashed and held the neck of the 74-year-old driver stable until paramedics arrived.
Janis, a patrolman first class, was first to respond to the car accident Monday at Portage Avenue and Ribourde Drive.
