Town of Newburgh PD Officers Save Life of Accident Victim

On March 22nd at approximately 8:40am Town of Newburgh Police Officers Matthew Zuniga and Michael Surita responded to a single car accident into a tree at the intersection of W. Meadow Wind Lane and Delafield Lane. Upon their arrivals officers found the driver, the sole occupant of the vehicle, unconscious and unresponsive. Unable to detect any pulse or breathing by the victim, officers initiated CPR with a bag valve mask and administered several shocks from an automated external defibrillator (AED) until Town of Newburgh Volunteer Ambulance Corp arrived on scene. The 50 year old victim began breathing on his own and was transported to St Luke’s Hospital for further treatment. The accident is believed to have been caused by a medical event suffered by the driver.
