First Responders Help Save Quiogue Man's Life On Sunday

Mar 15, 2016 3:30 PM

A Quiogue man’s life was saved on Sunday morning with the help of police officers with the Southampton Town, Westhampton Beach and Quogue police departments, as well as responders from the Westhampton War Memorial Ambulance Corps.

According to a release from Southampton Town Police Lieutenant Susan Ralph, police responded to the home at 9:13 a.m. after it was reported that the 42-year-old man was unresponsive.

Officer Robert Brown, a 26-year veteran of the Town Police Department, as well as Mark Yakaboski, an eight-year veteran of the Westhampton Beach Police Department, found the man—whom police did not name—without a pulse and not breathing. They both gave the man CPR while Daniel Bennett, a Quogue police officer, attached an AED, a device that automatically delivers a shock when needed to restore a cardiac rhythm.

Those efforts were continued until the Westhampton War Memorial Ambulance crew arrived at the home and continued giving the man CPR. They were able to resuscitate him and he began breathing on his own, police said.

The ambulance crew transported the man to Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead for further treatment.

This is a little odd of a News story in that the gentleman is on a ventilator, has not regained consciousness and has suffered extreme heart damage. I wouldn't pat myself on the back yet.

You comments are completely in correct and I would love to know where you get your facts from. This man in question walked out of the hospital last week and is currently home resting. Please reframe from making stupid comments without fact behind them.

The first responders should certainly be proud of their efforts. Their job is to save lives and they did just that. This is another amazing story of our first responders getting to a scene quickly and doing what they are trained to do effectively. 11953guest, please refrain from posting about the man's condition out of respect for he and his family. Instead, put your efforts into praying for his healing and strength for his family.
