One of Watertown’s Police officers received an award for his heroic actions that saved a man’s life. 

Patrol Officer Harold ‘Tony’ Physic was awarded the First Responder Recognition Award at the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC) CPR/FR Recognition Awards Ceremony held at Bentley University last Thursday, the Watertown Police Department announced Monday.

On Jan. 19, 2017, Physic responded to a local sports club where a man had collapsed while working out and was unresponsive, according to the WPD.

When he arrived, Physic determined that the patron was in full cardiac arrest and immediately began chest compressions while staff went to get an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), according to Watertown Police. 

“Physic continued CPR until he was relieved by the WFD and paramedics. Because of his quick actions, this patron is alive today!” the Police Department announced on its Facebook page“Please help us congratulate Ofc. Physic for receiving such a prestigious award! We here at the WPD are extremely proud of him.”

  1. Congratulations Officer Physic on receiving this prestigious award. I have known Officer physic for many years and I am not suprised at the recent heroic actions he has taken.
    My late husband Jack Devaney, Lieutenant on the Watertown Fire Department always spoke so hightly of Officer Physic. He had great respect for Officer Physic as they worked together through the years. So pleased this “unsung hero” was finally recognized! So deserved!
