On arrival the first Officer on scene  located an adult male lying in the parking, displaying symptoms of insufficient breathing, to  include labored, shallow breaths and bluish coloring. Bystanders in the area indicated the  subject had earlier ingested a combination of alcohol and other illicit drugs.  

The Officer deployed a department issued AED defibrillator device, which indicated that CPR  needed to be initiated. The Officer began a series of chest compressions until medical assistance  arrived.
