A Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputy was dispatched to a report of a man down at a McKinleyville residence late last week. Shortly after 9:00 on the morning of November 21, Sheriff’s Deputy Joseph Conlin arrived at the residence on the 4400 block of Central Avenue and found the victim inside. The victim, a 25 year-old man from McKinleyville, was not breathing and did not have a pulse. Deputy Conlin opened the man’s airway and immediately began CPR. Deputy Conlin was able to restore the man’s pulse and continued life saving efforts until medical personnel arrived. The man was transported to a local hospital and later transported to a Bay Area medial facility for further treatment.
