Milford police officer saves life with CPR

Milford police are saluting another one of their own for saving a life during the course of business.

Police Officer Patrolman Scot Knablin performed CPR on an unresponsive resident April 6.

Police said it was April 6 at about 8 p.m. when the Milford Police Department responded to a Yale Avenue residence on the report of an unresponsive subject without a pulse. Knablin was the first one on the scene and, after a quick assessment, began CPR on the person. Knablin continued CPR until the person awoke, gasping for air, police said.

The Milford Fire Department arrived shortly after and continued with further medical treatment. The person was then transported to the emergency room and was left in stable condition, police said.

This is the third time in recent months that a police officer has administered CPR and saved a Milford person’s life.
