DEPUTY: “We gotta go in there” Deputies Rescue, Resuscitate Drowned Suspect after Pursuit

PORT RICHEY (PASCO) – Thanks to the bravery of several Pasco County Sheriff’s Deputies, a well-known theft suspect survived drowning in an Emerald Pointe canal last night.  

According to officials, Deputies attempted a traffic stop on a blue Jeep, which they believed was driven by wanted theft suspect, 40-year-old Jerel Bornstein. But instead of stopping, Bornstein intentionally swerved his vehicle towards the deputy’s patrol car, and then fled southbound on US-19 from the area of SR-52.

Deputies pursued Bornstein until they reached Westport Drive and Seabreeze Drive, where the suspect fled on foot and jumped into a canal. When Deputies John Riyad and Robert Auch noticed Bornstein struggling to swim, they jumped into the canal pulled him onto shore.

When Deputies realized that Bronstein was unresponsive they began performing CPR and utilized an AED to resuscitate him before Fire Rescue arrived on the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office provided bodycam video of the daring rescue and life-saving efforts performed by Deputies.

  • It’s easy to forget sometimes that these guys will gladly do this for you 24/7, even for bad guys. Thank you for helping to keep my family safe. We could use more opportunities to meet / greet the guys willing to do this for us, in a comfortable setting. Maybe cookout, ect. Great job guys. Also the machine giving medical advise seems pretty handy.
