It didn't take long for veteran Chicago Police Officer Robert Gamez to put his heart defibrillator training to good use.
Gamez is credited with helping to revive a man suffering from a heart attack at Midway Airport today, just one week after the officer received the training on how to operate a defibrillator, Chicago police said.
Shortly before 1 p.m., several travelers gathered at a Southwest Airlines gate waiting to board a plane to Nashville when one of the passengers, a man in his 50s, collapsed and appeared to suffer a seizure, according to a police news release.
A flight attendant grabbed a defibrillator from the plane and handed it to Gamez who immediately began to operate the life-saving device.
And shouldn't we have some of these machines in every police station?
