EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Two members of the State Police helped revive an 80-year-old man who collapsed and was without a pulse at Atlantic City International Airport.

Sgt. Robert Varnadore and Trooper Michael Sitarik revived the man using CPR, State Police posted Tuesday on Facebook.

About 4:25 p.m. Nov. 25, police responded to a report of an unconscious man near the rental car drop-off section of the parking garage. His family called 911 after he reported feeling dizzy and collapsed, the post said.

The man was not breathing and had no pulse when Varnadore arrived, so he began doing CPR until Sitarik arrived, police said.

The officers performed CPR for several minutes and used an automated external defibrillator on the man. He regained a pulse and began breathing, the post said.

The victim was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Mainland Campus in Galloway Township, and was last listed in critical but stable condition, the post said.

AtlantiCare Paramedics and Atlantic City airport EMS also were at the scene.
