SHOUT OUTS: A trio of Waldwick police officers are being honored next week for saving the life of an 87-year-old resident who’d suffered a heart attack.
Sgt. Tom Dowling and Officers Dave Passaretti and Officer Kyle Moore used CPR and an automated external defibrillator to revive the Moore Avenue resident on May 7.
He was then taken to The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood before spending some time in a rehabilitation facility, Lt. Douglas Moore said this morning.
“The officers were unaware of the ultimate outcome after he was taken to the hospital,” Moore said. “But Sgt. Dowling recently stopped by the house and was greeted at the door by the man — who is alive and well.”
He was expected to attend this Tuesday’s Mayor and Council meeting for the presentation of life-saving awards to the officers.
