GALVESTON — A Galveston police officer and lifeguards worked to save a man’s life after he drove into a parked car on the seawall.
According to Galveston Island Beach Patrol Director Peter Davis, the man was not breathing and had no pulse after striking the car around 4:40 p.m. Saturday. Galveston police officer and paramedic Sean Migues pulled the man from his car and started cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Lifeguard supervisor David Nash and senior lifeguard John Garcia joined Migues, aiding in CPR and delivering two shocks with an automated external defibrillator to get the man’s heart restarted.
Paramedics then arrived, took over CPR and transported the man to the University of Texas Medical Branch.
The victim’s name and condition were unavailable Saturday evening.
