Evesham, NJ Patrolman gives CPR and saves 63-year-old man’s life
Patrolman Ian Traver is our #BlueFriday honoree for this week.
Officer Travers responded to a call at a residence with a man suffering cardiac arrest. Travers connected with the victim's wife learning that he was not breathing and was unconscious. Without skipping a beat, Travers immediately began implementing life-saving efforts and got the victim breathing again.
Thanks to the life-saving efforts of Officer Traver, the man was kept alive long enough for EMTs to get him to the hospital. The victim is now recovering from the incident.
This is one more example of the great instincts, training, and quick action that officers take in order to prevent a life-changing tragedy. Thanks to Officer Traver and all of the hero cops who have responded to incidents like this, countless people have a new lease on life.
