Police officers save life of man in cardiac arrest on Patchogue softball fieldBY PATRICK WHITTLE | [email protected]
11:43 AM EDT, March 15, 2009
Two Suffolk police officers saved the life of a Mastic Beach man who went into cardiac arrest on a Patchogue softball field, police said.

The officers, Paul Schreiber and Edward Ryby, responded yesterday to a 911 call at Shore Front Park in Patchogue, where they found Christian Barton, 30, of Spar Drive, unconscious.

The officers administered CRP with the assistance of a Patchogue public safety officer, police said. Schreiber applied a defribillator to Barton, which caused his pulse to restart, police said.

Barton was then transfered to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, where he is being treated, police said.

Guys if this shows anything it shows the importance that knowing the use and being trained to use an AED and CPR.

Kinda tough to have a guy who is in full cardiac arrest chew anything.

Agreed with the training in AED/CPR statement. Now we just have to AED's at the field. The quicker those pads are put on, the better chance of survival.

Even without an AED performing CPR until an AED gets to the victim gives that victim an increased chance to survive. Most law enforcement vehicles have an AED and even if they dont giving CPR until an ambulance gets there will give the victim a chance to survive. I would suggest every team should have at least 2 people trained in the use of both. Contact your local fire department for more information about getting trained

They are a little over $1000 each ... we just bought a second one for our main park where all the little league and softball games go on and we have now made it mandatory for all park attendants and recreation aides to have certification.

The problem is, most towns/municipalities do not have manned parks so there is no one there to handle these situations.

Was just reading the article in Newsday where they said that the incident took place on Saturday evening and when the Police arrived the victims teammates were performing CPR as the officer arrived. They attached the AED to the victim who had then lost his pulse. Then after 2 "shocks" a pulse returned. The victim was brought to the Hospital and transferred to Stony Brook.
