CLAREMORE —

Officials said it was unknown as to how the man became pinned under the vehicle.
In an email sent to the officers involved, Brown said
“I must say, first of all, that I am not surprised by your actions. I think all of you have always presented yourselves as capable and able to perform under extreme stress and at potential risk to yourself. This scenario only reinforces my opinion of you in that regard. 
“Secondly, I am pleased, as most assuredly the victim is, that you demonstrated initiative and innovation in your measures to clear the victim’s airway and to ensure that he was not subjected to further injury and the very real possibility of death. I appreciate each of you in this event and also in your continued professional service to your department and the citizens of our city.”
