A Chicago Police probationary officer on his first day on the job Sunday helped save a man’s life.

Probationary Officer Nicholas Picicci and Field Training Officer Robert Cavaiani responded to the 3100 block of North Marmora at 8:20 a.m., according to a news release from Chicago Police.

The officers found a 62-year-old man inside his home having a medical emergency, police said. He was unresponsive and not breathing.

Picicci and Cavaiani began CPR immediately and continued until the fire department arrived. The man was taken to Community First Hospital, where his condition was stabilized.

Hospital staff credited the actions of the officers as a key factor in saving the man’s life.

“This is P.P.O. Picicci’s first day on the job and one he won’t forget,” according to the release from police.
