On Tuesday, January 24th at approximately 4:45 p.m., the Secaucus Police Department responded to the area of Seaview Drive and New County Road on a report of an unresponsive male who was not breathing.

Upon his arrival, Lt. Christopher Rinaldi found the victim not breathing and no pulse could be found, prompting the ranking officer to perform CPR. At this time, Police Officers Mikhail Kowlessar and Kasey Kelly arrived and assisted.

While performing CPR, the officers utilized their Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and administered one “shock” to the victim and a pulse was found shortly thereafter by Hudson Regional Hospital EMT’s who were also on the scene.

The victim was transported to the hospital and at the time of this press release he is in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

“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,” Miller added.
