Laurel Police use Heartsine Defibrillator to save life

LAUREL, Md. (ABC7) — A 55-year-old man's life was saved after Laurel Police used an automatic electronic defibrillator (AED) to revive him.

Police said officers arrived to the 500 block of 8th Street on November 11 for a report of suspicious activity and found the man lying face down in the middle of the road not breathing.

Police attempted to use CPR to resuscitate him, and when that didn't work, an AED was used to shock him. Police said the man's heart began to beat and he was transported to Laurel Regional Hospital in stable condition.

AED's are used to read heart rhythms and deliver an electronic shock in cases of cardiac arrest.

"The benefit of having these AEDs in the cars is tremendous, especially when the time is short," said Chief Richard McLaughlin. "We can see now from this instance that they are truly life-savers."
