Port Authority Police Department Officers Lenny Guzman and William Mudry helped save the life of a 71-year-old woman at LaGuardia Airport on Monday.

Just one month out of the Port Authority Police Department Academy, Officers Lenny Guzman and William Mudry put their newly learned skills to the test while saving a life Monday.

A 71-year-old woman collapsed to the floor on the lower level of United Airlines in the Central Terminal Building at LaGuardia Airport around 2:10 p.m. on Feb. 10, according to the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey.  She didn’t have a pulse and was not breathing. Guzman and Mudry responded to the scene and began performing CPR.

The officers then used an automated external defibrillator, to which the victim responded to after a second application. She was then transported to Elmhurst Hospital, where she is currently recovering, the Port Authority said.

“The equipment and training used by these officers today illustrate the value of both to the traveling public,” said Joe Pentangelo, a Port Authority spokesperson.
