Officer Harrington found the patient not breathing and administered CPR. Police Officer Kevin Olenchak (EMT) arrived on the scene to assist, and the officers attached an automated external defibrillator (AED) unit which assessed the patient and advised shock.

Steven M. Meixler, M.D., Director of WPHC's Department of Medicine, said the emergency care nurses "played a pivotal role in the minute-by-minute care of this patient and the remark
