1st Marine Division Marines save motorcyclist's life

Sergeant Ronny Pool, a platoon sergeant with Headquarters and Service Company, Headquarters Battalion, 1st Marine Division, and Staff Sgt. Javier Acosta, a platoon sergeant with Charlie Company, 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, were on their usual commute home when they jumped into action and used their combat life saving skills to save an injured motorcyclist's life on Sept. 27, 2012. Pool, a 29-year-old native of De Soto, Kan., and Acosta, a native of Santa Clarita, Calif., were the first to respond to the scene after the man sustained life threatening injuries after crashing his motorcycle on the back of a pick up truck. Pool used a Marine Corps Martial Arts belt as a tourniquet to stop the bleeding on the man's severed leg. With the aid of their combat life saving skills, Acosta and Pool were able to stop the man's bleeding and treat for shock until paramedics arrived on scene.
