SHOUT OUTS: It was 2:41 a.m. March 29 when Waldwick police got a 911 call of a 57-year-old man possibly having a stroke.

Sgt. Robert Woessner and Officers John Greco and Dillon Sherman responded to the Hudson Avenue residence within two minutes and found Keith Dietel in cardiac arrest.

They began CPR, then administered several shocks with a defibrillator — and Dietl came around.

He was taken to The Valley Hospital and eventually returned home to continue his recovery, thanks to Woessner, Greco and Sherman.

Dietl joined the trio at last night’s mayor and council meeting, where they were honored for their life-saving achievement.
