Despite only being on the beat in the 102nd Precinct since November, Police Officer Joshua Farazmand was honored with the Cop of the Month award at Tuesday night’s community council meeting in Richmond Hill for responding to a call of an unconscious man last month and saving his life.
On Wednesday, Feb. 27, Farazmand was out doing routine traffic enforcement duty when he heard a call of an unconscious male outside 84-02 Beverly Road in Kew Gardens. When he arrived on the scene, he found a man unconscious and unresponsive slumped over the wheel of his car.
While waiting for emergency officials to arrive, Farazmand, who is also an EMT, started CPR and saved the man’s life.
“While [the man] was not a victim of a crime, I’m sure his family is glad he’s here today,” said Capt. Hank Sautner, commanding officer of the 102nd Precinct, seen here with Farazmand.
