The Wisconsin State Patrol says troopers used an automated external defibrillator on a heart attack victim to save his life Thursday.

A woman driving down Interstate 90 called the DeForest post and said she needed help for her husband. Troopers gave her directions and had the A-E-D ready when she arrived. The man wasn't breathing and had no pulse, but the use of the device and C-P-R helped re-establish a heart rhythm.
