TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa police officer is now at home recovering after being in the ICU after suffering a medical emergency on a call.
Last week, Officer Sean Love was in high spirits, talking and laughing and hoping to go home soon. Now, he's at home.
Around 8 a.m. February 26th Tulsa police responded to a call from an outside ambulance company to respond to 61st and Yale. Paramedics had had an unstable and combative patient.
Love responded first and engaged in a physical altercation with the patient. The patient was eventually secured, but Love suffered a medical emergency. He lost consciousness and had no pulse. Paramedics and officers immediately started live-saving measures and transported him to the nearby emergency room. Doctors resuscitated him and he was placed in a medically induced coma for period of time for his recovery.
Love said he is thankful for all the prayers he's received during his recovery. He's been with the department for more than nine years. He works in the Riverside Division, and he’s also a medic with Special Operations Team.
He said he is focused on healing and rehabilitation to return to duty as soon as possible and asks for prayers and privacy.
