Court Officers Revive Man Stricken at Worcester Court

Two members of the court security team at the Worcester court complex helped save an elderly Fitchburg man who was stricken Wednesday morning, January 7, 2015 at the Worcester Trial Court.
 
According to this item in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, the man had stopped breathing and did not appear to have a pulse. Associate Court Officer Kimberly Fluerant performed chest compressions on the man while Court Officer Joseph Cappabianca and Sgt. Michael Sonia of the Massachusetts State Police applied the automated external defibrillator. Within a minute of being treated with the defibrillator, the man was said to have been alert and speaking with his rescuers.
 
“I’m so proud of Kim and Joe,” said David Abbott, president of NAGE Local 458, which represents court security personnel across Massachusetts. “Court security officers have to respond to all kinds of emergencies in the blink of an eye. Because they kept their cool and put their training into action, that gentleman survived.”
