Thanks for quick ac­tion af­ter car­diac ar­rest

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
