Life saving stories
Here's a few stories that warmed our heart. Just sharing and thanking you for choosing a career that helps people that need it most.
Paramedics saved a 61-year-old man by CPR
When Quashne went unconscious his dog felt something wrong and woke up his wife. She instantly called 911. Corporal David Cole arrived first on the scene in just two minutes and started providing CPR. The on-scene personnel was able to restore the patient's pulse after giving eight defibrillations. Later the medics applied ice packs and chilled IV fluids to stabilize Quashne.
CPR helps man save his bestfriend
Sean Harrison and Ricky Bryan were on a fishing trip where Bryan went into cardiac arrest. His friend Harrison called 911 and meanwhile started providing chest compressions. After 10-15 seconds he noticed Bryan was aspiring out of his mouth but couldn't inhale. Meanwhile, another man who knew how to perform CPR came over to help Harrison until paramedics arrived. The first responded told these men that their actions most likely saved Bryan's life.
