Dunwoody Police say that the quick response of one of their officers saved the life of a man found unconscious at a local fitness center. Here’s the full account from the police department:

“Today (Dec. 26) Officer Tedesco responded to the Anytime Fitness located in the Kroger shopping plaza on Chamblee Dunwoody Rd at 285 in reference to a medical call. Upon his arrival the victim involved was unconscious, not breathing, and CPR was in progress by the staff members. Officer Tedesco deployed his AED and shocked the victim twice at which time a pulse was regained and the victim began breathing. The victim was then transported to St. Joseph’s and at last check (1700 hrs) he was listed in stable condition in the ICU unit. GREAT JOB by Officer Tedesco and the staff members of Anytime Fitness who went into action to saved a life!!”
