FOREST PARK, Ga. — A Forest Park police officer will be honored with the department's Lifesaving Award for using CPR to get a man breathing on his own inside a convenience store, said officials.

Maj. Chris Matson said Master Patrol Officer Christopher Simmons was approached Feb. 26 about 3 a.m. by a motorist on her way to take her adult son to the hospital for treatment. Matson said the man, 41, was unconscious and unresponsive when Simmons and the man's parents brought him inside the BP Connect store on Old Dixie Road in Forest Park.
