SHAWNEE, KS (KCTV) -

A 6-year-old boy who had always wanted to be a police officer was posthumously honored by the Shawnee Police Department for the lifesaving gifts he gave to so many people upon his tragic death.

Noah Davis was pulled from an apartment swimming pool in Overland Park on June 29. He died on July 7.

However, through his family's gift of organ donation, Noah helped save the lives of three people immediately, and it is estimated there will be about 40 more recipients of his organs.

Monday would have been Davis' seventh birthday, so Shawnee Police Chief Larry W. Larimore hosted a small service for him to swear him in as an honorary Shawnee police officer.

Davis' parents accepted the Medal of Valor on behalf of him.
