CHICAGO — For the second time in three days, Chicago Police officers' quick thinking saved an elderly man's life, according to a news release.
Tuesday afternoon, two officers on bike patrol saved a 75-year-old man's life on the Magnificent Mile.
Thursday morning at Midway Airport, Officers Walter Bland, John Munoz, Sherida Shepherd and David Dorkin teamed up to save the life of 73-year-old man, who had stopped breathing, police said.
Around 9:30 a.m., a restaurant employee alerted the officers of a patron in need of assistance. Officers moved the man from his seat in the restaurant to the floor and Dorkin administered chest compressions. Moments later, Bland relieved Dorkin and continued to give hands-only CPR, police said.
