We Can’t Thank Them Enough 


It was a beautiful Spring Day. The sun was shining, and the temps were in the 60’s. A perfect day to be out and about. At approximately 11am on Thursday March 28th, I was traveling on Peavine when I noticed two vehicles parked on Fairfield Blvd with a man lying on the ground next to the vehicles. The man was unresponsive. The gentleman had apparently suffered a cardiac event. A passerby had moved the man from the car, called 911, but was not providing aid. I had begun CPR when an FGPD officer arrived. Together, we continued CPR until the Cumberland County EMS ambulance arrived 15 minutes later. They were on another call far away. The responding EMS team proceeded to shock the man several times, with no result. The victim was quickly loaded into the ambulance and whisked away. I was sure the gentleman would not survive. I was elated to learn that the EMS crew, on the way to the hospital, had successfully revived the man and he was now receiving care at Cumberland Medical Center in cardiac rehab.
