VIDEO: Rookie Michigan Officer Helps Save Life on First Call

An officer with the Northville Township (MI) Police Department helped save a life Monday on his first day on the job.

Tyler Schmittou, 23, responded to a 911 call around 8 p.m., when a 62-year-old man was in cardiac arrest. It was the first call of his career.

Officers performed CPR and used an automated external defibrillator to shock the man.

Schmittou was part of a team effort. Officers took over giving chest compressions, while Schmittou was tasked with getting the AED ready to shock the man.

The man is making a full recovery. In Schmittou's vehicle, the AED was donated by Firehouse Subs, ClickonDetroit reports.
