Four officers from Forest Hills’ 112th Precinct saved the life of a Rego Park man in cardiac arrest last weekend, the city's Police Department said.

On Saturday, Police Officers Bryan Sullivan and Nicoll Leonard were on patrol near Austin Street and 63rd Drive when they spotted a 53-year-old man who had collapsed on the ground.

The officers radioed for EMS to respond and began performing CPR on the unconscious man.

Sgt. Ye Yuan and Officer John Laird showed up at the scene with an automated external defibrillator, which they used to help restore the man’s heart rhythm and breathing, the NYPD said.

The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is recovering.

The New York Post reported that the man had been waiting in front of his building for police to arrive after having complained about a noisy neighbor.
