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.
A pick up truck crashed into neighbor's home
Zach Howard and his wife were just home in the evening when they heard a very loud crash later that night. When they investigated, a blue pick up truck just crashed into their neighbor's side of the house and saw the driver lying on the ground. He stopped breathing and Howard, without wasting a second, immediately performed CPR. The driver was revived and was later brought to the hospital by paramedics.
Bingo night organizers save attendee
Bette Colonius attended a bingo benefit with her daughter in early celebration of her 65th birthday. Following the event, she collapsed in the parking lot around 10 pm. Jonna Eckenrod heard the commotion and ran outside to see what was wrong. She checked for a pulse and began CPR. She was quickly joined by veterens Kory Effinger and Tom Ede. By the time the ambulance arrived she was breathing erratically. Colonius is now recovering in the hospital.
