Brookhaven police are praising an officer for saving the life of a construction worker who was almost electrocuted.
Officer Sarah Miller was on patrol near Ashford Dunwoody Road and Johnson Ferry Road when she heard an unusually loud sound on Nov. 21, police said. She looked around and found a large group of people, along with Carlos Moran and Miguel Zabaleta, who’d both just been shocked.
Zabaleta was conscious and breathing; Moran was at the base of the hill with co-workers doing CPR. Miller told them to continue CPR while she got her city-issued defibrillator.
She gave one shock to Moran and he started to breathe on his own.
Both patients were transported to the hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
