(SEYMOUR) - An off-duty state trooper helped save a man's life by administering CPR as the man was suffering from a potential heart attack.

Trooper David Owsley responded to a radio dispatch of a man down in front of the Home Depot in Seymour.

Owsley was originally turning into the Wal-Mart when the dispatch came over, and since he was right next door, made his way over.

Troopers carry radios on them when they are off duty for such instances.

A second trooper arrived shortly after Owsley began CPR with an automatic defibrillator to help restart the man's heart.

Emergency medical techs then arrived and transported the man to Schneck Memorial Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.
