WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) — A Warwick fire captain was honored Monday for rescuing a paddle boarder while he was off-duty.

Earlier this month, Captain Andrew Sisson was off-duty surfing in Tiverton when he was alerted to a paddle boarder in distress, according to the Warwick Mayor’s Office.

He was able to get the individual more than 30-feet to shore.

Sisson performed CPR on the person until rescue crews arrived on scene, the city added.
