Sheboygan WI Police Officers Use Defibrillator to Revive Man, 72

Sheboygan, Wisconsin–A 72-year-old man visiting Sheboygan collapsed in a motel
lobby Tuesday night but was brought back to life by an automated external
defibrillator (AED), according to the Sheboygan Police Department.

Employees at AmericInn, called 911 about 6:45 p.m., and two
Sheboygan police officers arrived to find the Coleman resident was not
breathing and had no pulse, said Capt. James Veeser. The man’s name was not
released.

Officers Brian Inger and Ryan Schmitt performed CPR and then
used the AED to revive the man. He was taken to St. Nicholas Hospital and later
transferred to Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital Ozaukee in Mequon.

Veeser said the AEDs are typically used about twice a year.
All Sheboygan police officers and dispatchers are trained to use the
defibrillators, which are placed in every squad car.
