HAMILTON, Ohio - A Hamilton police officer is being credited with saving a man's life.

Officials said officers Jason Holmes and Scott Arbino were sent to investigate a report of a man who was unconscious and not breathing at a home in the 1600 block of Kahn Avenue about 6:30 p.m. Monday.

Police said when the officers arrived, they found a 47-year-old man at the scene who was not breathing and did not have a pulse.

According to the Hamilton Police Department, Holmes began CPR and was able to revive the man.

Paramedics arrived shortly thereafter and took the man to an area hospital where he was expected to make a full recovery.

Holmes' supervisor, Sgt. John Fischer stated, "Police Officer Holmes did an outstanding job in recognizing a grave condition that this individual was in, and then without hesitation administered what turned out to be life-saving intervention."
