MANCHESTER, NH – Manchester Patrol Sgt. Michael Biron was in the area of Rite Aid, 1631 Elm Street on Sunday January 25, 2015 at 8:05 a.m. when he observed an unconscious male seated in a motor vehicle. Sgt. Biron checked the condition of the male and realized his skin color and faint pulse mandated immediate medical actions.
Sgt. Biron, along with Officer Jamie Branch, pulled the subject from the vehicle and started to perform rescue breathing. Sgt. Biron was able to determine the man was showing signs of hypothermia and respiratory distress, so he continued his rescue breathing until medial assistance arrived on scene.
Members of the Manchester Fire Department administered a dose of Narcan, which had little to no effect. They continued rescue breathing until the ambulance showed up on scene. AMR workers took control and maintained medical procedures until the subject was transported to Catholic Medical Center. AMR members credited Sgt. Biron with saving the man’s life based on his swift and immediate actions.
