Three Port Authority police officers revived a 78-year-old man who stopped breathing and had no pulse at Newark Liberty International Airport late Thursday, officials said.
Officers were on patrol in Terminal A when they found the Woodbridge resident unresponsive, according to department spokesman Joe Pentangelo. The police administered three shocks with a defibrillator, but the man remained unresponsive.
Another officer started chest compression on the man before the patient started breathing and regained signs of a pulse, the spokesman added. Paramedics arrived and the man was taken to Newark Beth Israel Hospital for treatment.
The Port Authority identified the officers involved in the rescue as Sophie Perovic, Mark Zaleski and Thomas Gannon.
