ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Friday, the City of Albuquerque recognized two police officers as this week’s Friday’s Heroes for helping save a man’s life at the Sunport.
In December, restaurant employees at the Sunport called 911, reporting a man who was having a heart attack. The man, 32-year-old Ryan Johnson, was traveling from California to Albuquerque for work.
The city says Officer Corey Ryan and Officer Tyler Marney, rushed to Johnson’s aid.
“They were able to restore a weak pulse, the Albuquerque Fire Department then soon arrived and took [Johnson] to the hospital, and the doctor who treated [Johnson] explained to Officers Ryan and Marney that if it wasn’t for their heroic actions, the patient would have died,” said Mayor Richard Berry.
Johnson is expected to make a full recovery.
