Police: Broome Man Saved By Trooper’s AED

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

State police say a town of Chenango man regained consciousness after receiving a shock from an automated external defibrillator used by a trooper.

Authorities say troopers were sent to a Dimmock Hill Road residence around 10:35 Thursday night on a report that a 23-year-old man was not breathing.

When troopers arrived, they found the man was unconscious. They began CPR and attached the AED which delivered one shock.

Police say the man was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City, where he is expected to make a full recovery.

New York State Police began equipping all marked vehicles with automated external defibrillators in 2007. The agency says more than 6,000 employees have been trained in CPR and in the use of AEDs.
