Thanks for quick action after cardiac arrest
THANK you to the young man who acted on impulse to try to save my longtime friend John who suffered cardiac arrest while working at his new residence at Legion Gardens on Talbot Avenue on Oct. 2.
Apparently, this young man jumped the fence between his apartment building and Legion Gardens and started CPR while waiting for the paramedics to arrive. One of the medics said his actions kept John alive until medical help arrived.
Unfortunately, John passed away Oct. 7, but this does not diminish the young man’s actions.
It was very thoughtful and indeed it was another act of kindness for the head office of Piston Ring to send a crew to work the branch so all of John’s colleagues could attend his memorial service — a noble gesture and wellrespected by John’s family and friends.
In all, approximately 125 friends, colleagues and relatives attended.
