On arrival to the scene, Schroyer took over CPR. Schroyer then used an AED to shock the man several times. As a result, the man’s pulse and breathing continued.

A medic arrived and transported the victim to the hospital. Chattanooga firefighters said the man was conscious on arrival at the hospital. The CFD has since stated the man was “doing well.”
