YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol and an emergency room physician at St. Elizabeth Health Center were recognized Wednesday with certificates of recognition for lifesaving actions they took while off duty.

The afternoon of April 24th, OSP Trooper Joel Hughes saw a bicyclist on the ground of a trail close to the Mill Creek Golf Course.

The bicyclist, later identified as Samuel Fasline, fell from his bike and hit his head on the pavement. Trooper Hughes was off-duty with his family at the time, but he still ran to the biker's aid. He found Fasline not breathing and without a pulse.

Dr. Yazan Jadallah, a physician who was also in the area, began chest compressions. Hughes' daughter requested an automated external defibrillator from the golf course. Hughes shocked Fasline with the AED, and Dr. Jadallah continued with chest compressions.

The Boardman Fire Department and an ambulance arrived on scene and took over emergency care Fasline. He was transported to St. Elizabeth.

Trooper Hughes and Dr. Jadallah were recognized for their quick response in rendering aid to help Fasline, who is doing well today.
