Deputy Revives Man Who Stopped Breathing

On Wednesday, January 16, 2013 the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 19,000 block of Antioch Road, in White City for reports of man who was not breathing. Due to the location of the call, deputies knew they would arrive at the location much faster than medical responders.

Upon arrival at the location, deputies found Alan Cartwright, 49 years old, unconscious and not breathing. Deputy Gabe Burchfiel immediately began to perform CPR. After going through all the motions of CPR and using his emergency response training, Deputy Burchfiel was able to revive the unconscious man, and he began breathing again.

About ten minutes after deputies arrived on scene, medical response arrived and was able to transport the man to an area hospital to receive treatment. The man is expected to make a full recovery.
