MPD Officers Use CPR To Help Save Unresponsive Woman

(Memphis) Three MPD officers worked together to help save an unresponsive woman’s life early Tuesday.

Just before 2 a.m. Officers Adam Bittick and Joshua McCann learned about the situation over their dispatch radio and were the first to arrive at 2208 Long.

Inside, they found a 70-year-old woman who was unresponsive and not breathing.

They moved her from the couch to the floor, and Bittick began CPR, with help from McCann and Officer Silas Billington.

Responders from the Memphis Fire Department relieved Bittick when they arrived.

The woman was revived while being transported to the hospital.

MPD said in a statement:

“It is actions like these that show the Memphis Police Department at its best. ┬áIt is these selfless actions of service that make our officers the best at what they do.”

Bittick, McCann, and Billington are all assigned to the Airways Station. Bittick has been with MPD since January 2010, McCann joined in April 2013, and Billington has been with the department since February 2006.
