On June 12th at 8:33 a.m., the Secaucus Police Department received “a medical alarm” at
Long Shot Gun Range, located 375 at County Avenue.
Upon his arrival, Police Officer Philip Caruso found the victim not breathing with no pulse, so he began to administer Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
At this time, Police Officers Matthew Kirvin and Kristen Bronowich arrived and assisted with CPR.
While performing CPR, the officers utilized their Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and administered two “shocks” to the victim and a pulse was found shortly thereafter by Hudson Regional Hospital EMT’s who also arrived on the scene.
The victim was transported to the hospital and he is in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit as of this writing.
“I am extremely proud of these officers and commend their determination in performing these lifesaving measures. I am especially proud that these officers utilized their training and the equipment provided to them, worked as a team and were able to bring this victim back to life,” added Miller.
