After an initial assessment, he observed that the victim was unresponsive and no longer breathing. With the assistance of a Good Samaritan, Detective Malsheimer began CPR and called rescue. While CPR was administered, the victim moved then began gasping for breath. Detective Malsheimer continued to maintain the victim’s status until paramedics arrived and transported him to the hospital.
