Two state troopers resuscitated a Department of Transportation employee in Somerville this morning after the man suffered a possible heart attack.
Troopers Thomas Loughran and Geoffrey Stokes were working a paid detail at the Assembly Square Mall when the 60-year-old South Boston man fell to the ground, striking his head and receiving a laceration.
The troopers performed CPR, continuing rescue efforts until they were relieved by Somerville fire and rescue workers. The man, whose name was not released, was conscious when he was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital, State Police said.
