Report: Off-Duty Clarkstown Cop Prevents 4 year-old from Drowning

An off-duty Clarkstown police officer is being hailed as a hero after he reportedly prevented a 4 year-old from drowning over the weekend. According to the “Rockland Report” website, officer Paul Munding was attending the same birthday party as Carly Shaffer and her daughter, Ella, who went into a pool to retrieve a doll she spotted in the water. Shaffer says officer Paul Munding, whom she had just met five minutes earlier, saw the girl struggling to keep her head above water, and dove in fully-dressed to rescue her. There’s a photo of the young girl with officer Munding on the Clarkstown Police Department’s Facebook page.
