  • #Repost @peopleofpanynj Through the quick actions of seven Port Authority police officers, a 51-year-old Michigan man was saved this morning. The man fell while traveling down an escalator at Newark Liberty International Airport and went into cardiac arrest. The incident occurred at approximately 10:15 a.m., Tuesday, January 21, 2020, when the victim, traveling down the escalator, collapsed, falling backwards striking his head. Initially, it appeared he fainted causing a family behind him to call for help. PAPD Officer Nick Brucato was the first to arrive, finding the man unconscious, unresponsive and without a pulse. P.O. Brucato, along with PAPD Police Officer Phil Campo, immediately began CPR. They were soon joined by PAPD Police Officers Joe Francavilla, Matthew Rosati, Steve Magnavita, Michael Raccioppi and Michael Tilatitsky, all assisting with CPR. During their lifesaving actions, the victim coded six times but, the officers were able to restore his breathing and pulse. The man was then taken to Beth Israel Hospital in Elizabeth, where he is in stable condition and undergoing further treatment. A JOB WELL DONE OFFICERS!! #PAPD #serveandprotect #PANYNJ #ewrairport #PAPDPROTECTSNYNJ #PAPBA #CPR
