Capitol Police Officer Recounts Saving Life Outside Hart Building

Capitol Police Officer Nicholas Simons was standing guard inside the Hart Senate Office Building around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a pedestrian ran inside and alerted him that a man appeared to be having a heart attack on the sidewalk.

Simons, 27, hustled outside and found the man in question reclined on a big stone bench along Constitution Avenue.

"He was laid back ... his arms were stretched out ... they appeared to be moving and quivering," the cop told CQ Roll Call on Thursday, recounting the life-saving actions that earned him a hero's praise around Capitol Hill. "You could definitely see he was under duress from his eyes."
