Man saved by T workers helps brother graduate T police academy

Bossart pins badge on brother

Jeff Bossart graduated from the MBTA Police Academy yesterday to become one of Quincy's newest police officers.

His brother Kevin pinned his new badge on him at the conclusion of the ceremony (photo via MBTA).

Kevin has reason to be particularly thankful for the T: In January he went into cardiac arrest and collapsed at the Wollaston Red Line stop and workers there performed CPR on him until first responders could arrive and get him to the hospital.

Jeff's orientation at the police academy was scheduled for the day his brother collapsed.
