HILLSBOROUGH, NJ - On April 29, 2018, as Reanna Nelson played in a Hillsborough Soccer Club game, her grandfather, Romano Borgobello, was stricken while watching from the sidelines. When he became unresponsive, Hillsborough residents Kris Cauda and Alex Wnorowski both registered nurses, along with Marc DeMaio, who is about to be sworn in as a police officer in Old Bridge, performed CPR.
The Hillsborough Township Police soon arrived with an AED defibrillator device and continued CPR with assistance from the good Samaritans in anticipation of EMS’ arrival. The prolonged manual CPR saved Mr. Borgobello’s life.
To show his appreciation, Borgobell is donating an AED defibrillator device to Hillsborough Township. This imperative life-saving equipment will be available at future events.
