SOLON, Ohio — A Solon Police Department officer is being honored with the department’s Life Saving Award for using an automated external defibrillator (AED) to save a man's life in May.

Field Training Officer Nicholas Kline is being recognized for resuscitating a 63-year-old man, according to the department's Facebook page. On May 2, Kline responded to West Nimrod Street for a report of a man who collapsed in the street and was unresponsive.

Neighbors had already begun CPR, and upon arrival, Kline used an AED to deliver a single shock to the victim. This restored the man’s heart to a normal rhythm, the post said.

The 63-year-old man was talking before being transported to the hospital and made a full recovery.
