Toronto Police Officer is Mikey Network's 14th Save

TORONTO--The Mikey Network's 'MIKEY', a public access defibrillator, has saved a 52-year old male police officer's life who suffered sudden cardiac arrest while exercising as part of a regular training program.

"Fortunately, others at the Toronto Police College gymnasium on Birmingham St. in Etobicoke performed CPR and applied the MIKEY defibrillator. After two shocks, they were able to get a heartbeat. He was transported to Mississauga Trillium Hospital for treatment and is expected to make a full recovery," said Mikey Network Chairman Hugh Heron.

The 'MIKEY' was one of the 70 defibrillators donated to the Toronto Police Services, Provincial Courts and Collision Centres in the GTA.
