Local Police Officer Rescued by UMBC Students, Catonsville Times Reports

The Catonsville Times reports that a Baltimore County police officer who had a heart attack and collapsed while jogging at UMBC last week has been released from the hospital, thanks in part to the efforts of two UMBC students who responded to the incident.

Chris Tingley, a volunteer EMT and junior studying emergency health services, stopped at the scene and began performing CPR while student Antigone Cox called 911 and stayed on the line with a dispatcher. Both Tigley and Cox visited the police officer in the hospital during his recovery, which police Capt. John Spiroff has called “remarkable.”
