 USA Weightlifting Member and Baltimore Police Officer Patrick Curtis is credited with saving a man's life over the weekend.

Officer Curtis and partner William Caudle were on foot patrol near Pratt and Carey Streets last Saturday when they saw a man who appeared to have fallen out of a chair. 

The man, believed to be in his 60s, had no heartbeat and was not breathing. 

Officers Curtis and Caudle immediately began CPR and were able to get a heartbeat and get the man breathing again. 

Paramedics arrived and took the man to a hospital for treatment.

Officer Curtis is a USA Weightlifting Certified Coach at Titan Barbell in Cockeysville and is a member of the Maryland/Potomac Valley Local Weightlifting Committee. 

Thank you, officers!
