A judge at Bronx Supreme Court was saved by a court clerk - who happens to moonlight as an FDNY medic - yesterday morning. Judge Berman Katz's had a heart attack while with some colleagues, and, luckily, clerk John McConnell was around. McConnell told the Daily News Katz "was very pale and slightly blue-looking," and McConnell used CPR, then defibrillators, and then CPR again to revive him. Katz, who retired in May, regained a strong pulse but was taken to Lincoln Hospital.
McConnell works at Battalion 26 in the Bronx after his day's work at the court. If you're interested in learning CPR, the FDNY offers CPR education and the Department of Health also has suggestions on where to go.
