Police revive 86-year-old man at PATH station

JERSEY CIITY — An 86-year-old Jersey City man was revived at a Pavonia/Newport Path Station on Dec. 3 by Port Authority police officers after the man was found to have no pulse.

At about 4:35 p.m., Port Authority Police Officers Marcus Credle and Leland Rogan were assigned to Heightened Security Posts at Pavonia/Newport PATH Station when they responded to a call on platform A for a “man down,” in need of medical assistance. Upon arrival they observed a good Samaritan attempting CPR on a man with no pulse. They retrieved a defibrillator and proceeded to take over CPR. The defibrillator was deployed and after one shock the man regained a pulse and breathing on his own.
EMS responded and transported the man to Jersey City Medical Center C.M.C. for evaluation. When departing for the hospital, EMS personnel stated the man had good vital signs.
