Presentation of a Saved By the Belt Award to the family of Sgt. Scott Zahniser, Cleveland Metroparks Ranger. On July 19, 2007, Sgt. Zahniser was called to respond to a motor vehicle crash with possible injuries, only to find the crash involved his own father and 17-month-old son. When he arrived on the scene, he found his father's car had been struck from behind at a red light by a pickup truck, which had pushed the vehicle's trunk into the back seat. Scott was relieved and amazed to find that his father and son escaped the potentially fatal crash with only minor injuries-his father because he was wearing his seat belt and little Connor because he was securely buckled into a properly installed car seat.
