A Chesterfield Township police officer's efforts saved a 55-year-old man from what appeared to be a fatal heart attack, police said Wednesday.
Officer Michael Ogden responded to Advance Boring & Tool, 26950 23 Mile, around 8:30 p.m. Monday. When he arrived, the man was on the ground and other workers were administering C.P.R., according to Detective Sgt. Deron Myers.
"The man appeared lifeless, was not breathing, and was purple in color to the face," Myers stated in a news release. "Officer Ogden attempted to locate a pulse on the man and there was none."
Ogden then used his department-issued Automated External Defibrillator, also known as A.E.D., to administer an electric shock. C.P.R. was then continued momentarily until the unidentified man experienced shallow breaths and regained a pulse, police said.
The man was then taken to McLaren Macomb Hospital in Mount Clemens and was expected to be moved out of the intensive care unit Wednesday, Myers said.
