Denver, CO Sept. 29, 2005 Brandan Creason gets a hug from his father Denver police officer Del Creason after Brandan received the Chief's Family Unit Citation from Denver police chief Gerald Whitman at the Denver Police Academy for saving his father's life after a shooting accident. Brandon and his father were shooting earlier this month when a rifle malfunctioned and shot the bolt of the gun backwards, lodging 2.5 inches into Officer Creason's face. His son pulled the rifle bolt from his dad's face and and drove him 12 miles to the hospital even though the 15-year-old barely knew how to drive. Brandon also received an Honorary Lifesaving award and a check for $500. Rick Giase/Special to the News
