Recently, Officer G. Rodriguez was on routine patrol when he was flagged down by a female citizen. She had been a passenger in a car being driven by her father. Her father suffered a heart attack and was unconscious. Officer Rodriguez quickly accessed the situation and realized that the man did not have a pulse. Officer Rodriguez immediately began CPR and was soon assisted by Officer E. Hernandez who arrived on the scene. Both officers worked furiously to bring the man back to life.
The Houston Fire Department arrived on the scene and took over. After the patient was defibrillated inside the ambulance, he regained consciousness.
HFD advised that without the immediate application of CPR the man may have died.
Thanks to the life-saving efforts of Officer Rodriguez and Officer Hernandez this man’s life was spared. HPD would like to commend these two officers for a job well done.
