The San Ramon Police Department sang the praises of two officers who provided key medical assistance to a man suffering a heart attack Sunday, marking the second straight weekend San Ramon officers helped save someone facing a health emergency.
The latest situation unfolded Sunday morning, when Cpl. Michael Schneider and Officer Sophia Wrangham responded to the tennis courts near the Olympic Pool on Broadmoor Drive after receiving a report of a man experiencing a heart attack, according to a post on the SRPD Facebook page.
The officers arrived and found a doctor at the scene already administering CPR on the 45-year-old man, according to SRPD. Schneider responded by using the automated external defibrillator (AED) he brought from his patrol car.
Wrangham and Schneider soon took over and continued life-saving measures until San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District personnel arrived, according to SRPD. Fire personnel then transported the man to San Ramon Regional Medical Center, where he is recovering, police said.
The incident at the tennis courts occurred one week to the day after Wrangham and two other colleagues -- one on-duty, one off-duty aided a 70-year-old man who collapsed and was non-responsive at ClubSport San Ramon off Bollinger Canyon Road.
Officers also used an AED and administered CPR during the July 10 incident until fire district personnel arrived, took over and transported the 70-year-old man to the hospital for treatment.
