Fairfield police officer helps revive man in cardiac arrest

A Fairfield police officer was among those who revived a man who was in cardiac arrest on Black Rock Turnpike Saturday.

Officer Michael Paris responded after multiple 911 calls reported a man slumped over behind the wheel of a car near Garden Catering, 2068 Black Rock Turnpike, shortly before 4 p.m.

The man, who just turned 92, was driving a car with his wife as a passenger, and had just finished shopping at ShopRite, Sgt. Suzanne Lussier said.

He was not breathing and had no pulse when the first responders reached him.

Paris and others, including an emergency medical technician who stopped at the scene, administered CPR, and Paris attached an automated external defibrillator.

The man began breathing again before he was taken to the hospital by American Medical Response, Lussier said.
