ASHLEY – Quick action from a by-stander who knew CPR is credited for saving a man’s life at an Ashley restaurant.

Police were called to Deano's Diner on 202 W State Street Wednesday morning just before the noon hour. There was an unresponsive 61 year old man with no pulse at the restaurant.

First officers on the scene found a Good Samaritan already performing CPR on the man. Officers took over until the Ashley Fire Rescue arrived.

Firefighters used an automated external defibrillator (AED) and delivered one shock to the man. As the paramedics arrived on scene, the male began breathing and regained consciousness.
