(WXYZ) — Two Detroit police officers were able to reunite with the runner who they helped save after he collapsed during the Detroit Free Press Marathon in October.
The 26-year-old man went down at Cass and Kirby during the race. We’re told a spectator got the attention of Detroit police officers Dario Sharp and Troy Wesley. They reportedly jumped into action along with a woman who helped keep the runner alive with CPR.
The officers recently went to visit the man, who they say is now doing better.
Police tweeted pictures of the reunion, saying they returned his shirt from the marathon and that he was thankful and appreciative to them for helping save his life.
It was an emotional reunion between our @DPD8Pct officers Wesley and Sharp and the family of a young man who went into cardiac arrest during the Detroit Free Press Marathon last month.— Detroit Police News (@detroitpolice) November 4, 2021
We're glad to see that Tommy is doing much better! Great job again, officers. #OneDetroit https://t.co/S1ZzYuWsIy
