    Two police officers are credited with reviving a man whose heart had stopped after he choked on food at a Long Island restaurant.
     
    Suffolk County Officers David Weymouth responded to Sur Steakhouse in Huntington at 7:45 p.m. Saturday after getting a 911 call of a man chocking on food.

      Police say as Weymouth began the Heimlich maneuver, the 80-year-old man went in to cardiac arrest and lost consciousness. Police say the man's internal defibrillator began shocking him in an attempt to restart his heart.
     
    At that point, officer Pete O'Brien arrived and started chest compressions.
     
    The man's airways were cleared and he regained consciousness.
     
    The man was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
