The Liberty Lake City Council on Dec. 6 approved a city proclamation recognizing Ethan Moriniti for his life-saving action during an incident that occurred at the Liberty Lake Golf Course on Oct. 2.
Moriniti, a Liberty Lake resident and 2020 Central Valley High School graduate, is a certified in CPR and AED training from Spokane Falls Community College, where he is talking pre-requisites for studies in chiropractic and sports medicine.
The city proclamation recognizes Moriniti's response in observing a person in the Liberty Lake Golf Course's parking lot who was exhibiting the signs of a possible heart attack. During the situation, Moriniti began applying CPR and used an AED until an ambulance arrived.
The man he helped rescue, Mark Desrosiers, was on hand for the special presentation during the City Council's Dec. 6 meeting at City Hall. During the presentation, Moriniti received a copy of the proclamation from Mayor Cris Kaminskas, a Liberty Lake Police patch from Police Chief Damon Simons, and challenge coins from both Simons and Spokane Valley Fire Dept. Deputy Chief of Administrative Support Services Tom Hatley.
