The officers started CPR (Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation) and managed to revive the man, a 36-year-old Carrara local. But he again stopped breathing and officers needed to recommence CPR.
A defibrillator was used to bring the man back to life and he was transported to Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment.
