A Door County sheriff's deputy performed CPR on a man who had stopped breathing and had no pulse, saving his life, the department reported this week.

According to Sgt. Thomas Lemke's Facebook post, Deputy Brad Shortreed was dispatched at 2:48 p.m. June 27 to Wisconsin 42 near Clarks Lake Road, where he found the 75-year-old driver, Jerry Waite, behind the wheel of his sport utility vehicle in the ditch. He pulled Waite out and performed CPR until a first responder arrived with a defibrillator.

Waite was treated at Ministry Door County Medical Center and released a few days later.

"It was Deputy Shortreed's quick actions, to remove Waite from the vehicle and immediately start CPR on Waite that helped save his life," Lemke said.
