WLWT reports Indiana trooper saves man with AED during an accident investigation

A trooper is being praised for his quick action during a crash investigation.

It happened on Sunday when a routine traffic crash investigation took an unexpected turn for an Indiana State Trooper when the man he was talking to fell to the ground unconscious.

Smith was explaining the crash paperwork when the 60-year-old driver grabbed his chest and fell to the ground unconscious.

Smith then rushed to his police car and grabbed his Automated External Defibrillator (AED). When Smith attached the pads of the AED to the man, the AED advised that a shock was needed.

After delivering the shock, Smith began chest compressions. After several compressions, the man regained consciousness and began to talk. Responding paramedics praised Smith’s quick action before transporting the man to a local hospital.
