Pittsburgh Sheriff Survives SCA

Pittsburgh Sheriff Survives SCA

January 9, 2007– Acting Allegheny County Sheriff William P. Mullen, Jr. survived sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) while playing basketball, thanks to the quick actions of retired Pittsburgh police Sgt. Paul McComb and city Detective Paul Dugan, who provided cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and used an automated external defibrillator (AED) on Mullen. He was released from Mercy Hospital one week later.

Mullen commended his rescuers and the crew from City of Pittsburgh Medic and all the doctors, nurses and staff who contributed to his care.

"I don't know how my family and I would have made it through this difficult time without the support of the law enforcement community. I look forward to getting back to work soon," added Mullen, who will continue cardiac rehabilitation.
