An alleged robber’s crime just may have saved his life, and now he’s thanking the police officers who came after him.

Police say the alleged robber walked into an Upper East Side CVS around 66th Street and Lexington Avenue and stole some baby formula before taking off running.

The article goes on to state the following:

He was chased by a store employee, but soon collapsed to the ground. NYPD sergeant James Gebhard of the 19th precinct said they saw a man lying on the ground midway down the block. He soon realized the man was the alleged robber.

Gebhard checked the man’s vitals and when he couldn’t detect a pulse, he began chest compressions until he felt the suspect’s pulse return.

“He’s a person first. Everything else that he did, that’s secondary,” the officer said.
