Paramedics are crediting two Kelowna RCMP officers for saving a man's life.
At 3:30 p.m. Monday, the RCMP received a report of a possible intentional overdose at a residence on the 1400 block of Leaside Avenue. No one answered the door when police arrived, but officers were able to gain access to the home through an unattached residence.
They found a 64-year-old man unconscious and unresponsive. He had no vital signs. The officers administered CPR and continued for several minutes until paramedics could take over.
BC Ambulance Service paramedics are able to revive the man and rushed him to Kelowna General Hospital, where he remains in serious condition.
Paramedics said the RCMP officers likely saved the man's life.
