UPDATE: Officer Daniel Breslin “continues to fight for his life but he is more stable today,” Bergen County Police Chief Brian Higgins said today.

“The medical team at Hackensack University Medical Center is amazing and are giving PO Breslin the best possible care,” Higgins said. “What little information is relayed to us is encouraging.”

“The support for PO Breslin and the sincere concern for his condition is very much appreciated,” the chief added. “We are united with so many of you in holding out hope that [he] Breslin survives this ordeal.

“Thank you for your continued prayers and support. When there is any significant information we will share but right now it appears that we must wait and pray and hope.”

  • UPDATE: The family of critically injured Bergen County Police Officer Daniel Breslin thanked everyone this afternoon for “all the love and concern” and asked that people focus more on him and his recovery than on details of the crash that put him into a coma — at the hands of a man who authorities said was drunk.

Breslin, a former South Hackensack police officer who joined the BCPD in 2010, remained in a coma this morning.

He sustained a severe head injury, a fractured skull and broken ribs that collapsed a lung after his marked vehicle was struck on Route 46 in Lodi before dawn Saturday by a car driven by a Lodi High School teacher and coach who authorities said was drunk.

Those who visited Breslin this weekend at Hackensack University Medical Center told CLIFFVIEW PILOT that they’ve come away optimistically hopeful.

He remained critical but stable today.
