A group of Stoughton firefighters resuscitated a woman who collapsed at a local boxing match on Saturday, Stoughton Fire Rescue officials said Sunday.
While attending the boxing match, at which firefighter Mike Schifone's son was competing, a woman collapsed and was found to have no pulse. Through CPR and a defibrillator, Stoughton firefighters were able to resuscitate the woman, officials said.
The department commended those who rescued the woman: Firefighters Peter Denneno, Bradford Newbury, Ryan Cabral and former Stoughton firefighter Paul McCafferty, now of West Bridgewater.
"We are very proud of the firefighters who saved this woman's life," fire officials said in a statement Sunday.
