The middle aged man's pulse was coming and going, so the off-duty firefighters sent for a defibrillator.
"Once the AED arrived, we were able to apply the AED and use it effectively and it worked well,” Crocker said.
They used it once and then again, until an EMS crew arrived. Crews applied it a third time in the ambulance, but the man was saved due to the quick actions of the off-duty firefighters.
"We thought we had won the Super Bowl or something like that. It was pretty nice,” Crocker said.
The man was taken to a nearby Norwood hospital, where he was treated and released.
