Two Bellevue police officers were honored yesterday for saving a man who had become trapped under his sport-utility vehicle on Thanksgiving.
Cpl. Derrick Isackson and Officer Heidi Moon received Life Saving Awards at a ceremony in Bellevue City Hall.
Late last year, they answered a 911 call about a 52-year-old Seattle man who had fallen under his vehicle. Moon directed bystanders to help her lift the front end of the SUV, and Isackson pulled the man to safety.

Isackson is a two-year member of the department, and Moon has been on the force for about six years.
The man who was trapped under his vehicle had not put the car in gear or set the parking brake, and the SUV began rolling and pushed him to the ground, police said. He was later charged with driving under the influence.
