THE BRONX - Neighbors and friends are thanking the NYPD officers who helped saved a man's life.

Last Sunday, Stanley Torres was playing second base for his softball team when he dropped to the ground after suffering a heart attack.

Officer Alejandro Ochoa, of the 43rd Precinct, was driving in the area when he happened upon the scene. The third-year officer says he immediately called an ambulance.

An automated external defibrillator was used to restart Torres' heart and he was taken to Einstein Medical Center, where he is still recovering.

Police say Torres' condition is continuing to improve.
