San Francisco Police are being credited for saving a woman’s life after being notified that she was unresponsive on Wednesday morning. 

Around 7:06 a.m. an airport employee told SFPD Airport Bureau Sergeant Bobby Cheung that the 38-year-old woman was in a stairwell. 

Cheung saw that the woman did not have a pulse so he began CPR and called for an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Officers Ryan Mariano and Christopher Giles arrived with the AED and then they proceeded to take turns performing CPR, followed by Sergeant Mark Yesitis and Officer James Trail who also came to assist.

Eventually, the woman blinked her eyes and squeezed one of the officer’s hands.

The officers put the victim in a comfortable position to recover while waiting for medical personnel.

“I am very proud of our Airport Bureau officers,” said SFPD Police Chief William Scott. “I can say without hesitation that because of their training and swift response, a life was saved. These officers exemplify what it means to be one of San Francisco’s Finest.”
