Quick Action By Troopers,

Citizen Save 70-Year-Old

RICHFIELD SPRINGS – A woman who suffered cardiac arrest is expected to survive after the quick actions of state troopers at the barracks here and a citizen.

Earlier today, a trooper at the local barracks responded to a report of a 70-year-old woman who had collapsed in the lobby of the Post Office on Main Street.  The woman, who was not further identified, was unresponsive when the trooper arrived; a citizen was already performing CPR.

A lieutenant and a trooper administered two shocks from a defibrillator, revived the woman, and Richfield Springs EMS transported her to Bassett Hospital.  The defibrillator remained attached and delivered several more shocks.

The woman regained consciousness at the hospital and is expected to recover.
