7/24/15 - Last night, Officer Shore was off-duty and headed to a men's league hockey game in Quincy. Upon entrance into the building, he observed an individual known to him taking off his gear and headed toward the ice. The individual advised Officer Shore that one of his teammates had possibly suffered a heart attack while skating and was being treated by an off-duty EMT. Officer Shore, possessing lifesaving skills as a first responder with a certification in CPR, quickly headed toward the scene and requested a bystander to grab an AED mounted on the wall. When Officer Shore reached the victim, CPR was already in progress by two other individuals. He informed the two that it was necessary to prepare the victim in order for the AED to be applied. After taking the appropriate measures, Officer Shore administered two shocks to the victim with the AED, reestablishing a pulse. Medics arrived on scene at this point and took over lifesaving efforts. Friends of the victim reported that he was talking and alert at a Boston hospital later that night.

Officer Shore credits the efforts of the two individuals performing CPR upon his arrival as well as the training he has obtained during his time spent in the military and here at NPD. He stated that it was the most memorable hockey game of his life.
