Video: Officers use AED to save a life at a Crossfit Box

Officers from Canton, GA, were dispatched to Crossfit Canton after a client collapsed mid workout. Officers Jimmy Butler and Patrick Duncan had an AED and were able to provide a shock to the patient. Body camera footage of their save is in the news clip below.

While some folks might cry HIPAA violation, I think this video has an important public relations role. It shows that officers are not just sitting around waiting to ticket and harass people. Officers on patrol provide an extra capacity for many aspects of the public safety mission.
