A Malden Police cadet will be recognized next week for his life-saving efforts last November.
On Nov. 12, 2013, Yung answered a call from a concerned party regarding a friend’s suicidal Facebook posts. The friend had stopped answering his or her cell phone, the party said.
Through Yung’s work, the friend was located a short time later in Dover suffering from an ingestion of prescription medication and alcohol. If the friend hadn’t been located so soon, he or she may have died, police said.
