June 4th, 2017 - Co-workers knew CPR, and that made all the difference

Jeanne Burkart almost became one of those stories nobody wants to hear.

The afternoon of Feb. 4, 2017, the then 57-year-old Burkart was at Crete Carrier Corp. in Lincoln, where she works as a legal assistant.

Without warning, she collapsed and lost consciousness. One of her colleagues called 911, while others rushed to help her.

Burkhart was not breathing and had no pulse. Colleagues Wade Petray and Colin Lee began CPR. Burkart’s pulse and breathing resumed, buying paramedics time to jump-start her heart with a defibrillator. Burkart was intubated and rushed to a Lincoln hospital.

When she woke up six days later, Burkart’s doctors told her that she had suffered an arrhythmia — an abnormal heart rhythm that causes about 325,000 U.S. deaths each year.

About Omaha

Omaha was originally founded in 1854 and became an official part of the state of Nebraska a few years later in 1857. The climate in this state is rather ordinary with hot, humid summer months followed by colder winter months. Since it is not located near any mountain ranges or large bodies of water, it tends to be more of a culture and art based community as far as attractions to the outside world.

In the Old Market section of town, visitors can walk on old style cobbled streets and explore buildings that have been preserved from historical times. The city has actually extended a great amount of its resources to preserving a good bit of the historical elements of its landscape.

There are also a wide variety of museums throughout the city, making it rich for exploration by those who enjoy history, art, and other cultural artifacts. These museums are accompanied by a variety of shops and restaurants for visitors to stop into as well.
