Deputy Brian Padova has been named Deputy of the Month for July by the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
On Jan. 16, a resident of Veranda Springs Mobile Home Park called 911 about a neighbor having a medical emergency. A 73-year-old male had collapsed inside his home in front of his wife and was unresponsive.
Padova found the male with no pulse, provided CPR and used an automated external defibrillator once before emergency medical services personnel took over.
EMS detected a pulse and the male was transported to the hospital where he was revived.
Never miss a local story.
