Arizona workers may want to pay attention to a recent workers' compensation case in a neighboring state that resulted in a unanimous opinion being handed down by the New Mexico Supreme Court. In this case, the wife of a fallen police officer filed for workers' compensation death benefits after her husband drowned trying to save the life of a child in 2002. An examiner believed that the officer hit his head when he dove to rescue the child. Fortunately, the child made it out of the water alive, although the rescuer did not.
