BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) - A school nurse and a police officer are being lauded for reviving a 10-year-old boy who was found unresponsive at a school playground on Long Island.

A ceremony is being held Friday for Suffolk County Police Officer John McAuley and nurse Mary Alice Koch.

The child was not breathing and had no pulse when police were called to Laurel Park Elementary School in Brentwood around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Koch began chest compressions while McAuley operated a ventilation device.

The child regained consciousness after they’d performed CPR for about two minutes.

He was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
