Middlebury Police Log: EMS unable to revive a local man

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police and Middlebury Regional EMS officials worked diligently, but ultimately unsuccessfully, to revive an unresponsive man at a Woodbridge Lane residence on Aug. 10. Police and MREMS responded to the residence at around 10:30 p.m. that Thursday. Upon arrival, officers said they found that Charles A. Bucchioni, 36, of Burlington had no pulse and wasn’t breathing.

Officers initiated CPR and continued to work with MREMS until they were able to take Bucchioni to Porter Hospital. But shortly after his arrival at Porter, Bucchioni was declared deceased. An investigation into Bucchioni’s death is ongoing, though police said there’s no indication of foul play.
