Quick response to tragedy
Tragedy struck our close-knit family at the First Presbyterian church new year’s eve concert, with the passing by massive heart attack of our most loved Brian muise: husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle to many.
of all the many places this could have occurred on that day, the family is comforted to know, with absolute certainty, that the immediate medical help Brian received by community members was his best chance.
The off-duty ottawa firefighter who miraculously appeared, and within 15 seconds took charge of the whole situation in a calm and compassionate manner, and the retired nurse who performed mouth-tomouth before paramedics arrived, are forever in our hearts. The paramedics’ and hospital staff ’s expertise and caring support made an unreal situation as palatable as one could hope.
We will never question or be in doubt about what else could have been done, and for this, we thank everyone for all they did, and for
our peace of mind. Mary Campbell Prescott
