LA PLATA, Md. (August 2, 2011)—The television series, Saved by a Stranger: Extraordinary Acts of Courage, a new program on the Oprah Winfrey Network, plans to air a story from Charles County in an upcoming episode.
A crew from Skip Films, a consultant with the Oprah Winfrey Network, visited Charles County recently to tape a segment highlighting Emergency Dispatcher James Maloney and a seven-year-old Charles County citizen, Madison Davis.
On March 6, the quick thinking and bravery of Davis, who called 9-1-1 while her mother was having a life threatening medical emergency, and the calm, decisive actions of 9-1-1 Dispatcher James Maloney, who received her call, saved the life of Madisons mother. Maloney and Davis gained national media attention for their story, and the Oprah Winfrey Network contacted Charles County Government expressing interest in devoting an episode to them.
