The motorcyclist was critically injured and Officer Burtrum, who was off duty at the time, gave the man CPR on the scene, according to a release.
Unfortunately, the motorcyclist later died.
During another incident, according to Coroner Leon Jones in a news release, Officer Burtrum found an unresponsive woman.
