BERGEN COUNTY, NJ – A retired police sergeant was rescued and revived after a car accident on Route 80 in Saddle Brook on Tuesday.
According to Nj.com, State Troopers Kyle Gorman and Pierre Haddad responded to a multi-vehicle crash scene on I-80 near milepost 61. When an off-duty firefighter who was also at the scene pulled retired State Police Sgt. First Class Peter Visconti from the wreckage, he was unresponsive and unconscious.
Gorman and Haddad used CPR and a defibrillator and were able to find a pulse after a few tries. However, Visconti continued to struggle for breath until Haddad, also an EMT, used an oral airway tube to assist his breathing until he could be transported to the hospital.
Visconti is expected to make a full recovery thanks to the actions of Gorman, Haddad, and other bystanders.
