A ‘CSI’ (or, rather, Forensic Scene Investigator) helped save a man’s life earlier today in Stechford after they spotted a male who had collapsed in the street following a suspected heart attack.
As the FSI quickly began CPR on the male, they radioed for a police unit to respond to the location with a defibrillator.
‘C’ Team response units quickly arrived on the scene and promptly put the defib to work as paramedics raced to the scene.
Thanks to the FSI and their colleagues’ quick-thinking actions, the male was conscious and breathing as he was rushed to hospital for treatment.
A spokesperson for Response WMP on Twitter said:
‘An FSI officer @ForensicsWMP spotted a male collapse & suffer a suspected heart attack.
‘They quickly began CPR & #CTeam Stechford raced to the scene with a defibrillator.
‘Fortunately these actions were lifesaving and he was taken to hospital conscious and breathing!’
