On Tuesday afternoon I was taking my daughter home after she had been with me a few days. About a mile from her house was a car off to the side of the road, doors open, a woman jumping up and down, waving to cars to stop. She was on her cellphone. 3 cars went past in front of me, I slowed down and saw a man slumped in the front seat. I quickly pulled over and ran to the car, my previous training from the military kicked in. I was a Navy Hospital corpsman for 8 years, now a nursing student. Anyway, I checked him, no pulse, no breathing and he was as blue as the sky. I grabbed and carried him to the side of the raod onto the grass. Opened his airway and ripped open his shirt and began CPR. I then heard sirens in the background. After starting the 2nd cycle of CPR and police officer arrived and got his portable defibrillator out. He hooked that up and I grabbed an air mask and bag and the defib pack gave the man a shock, we continued CPR and the machine shocked him again. By this time 2 paramedics arrived and they took over. He was taken to the hospital where I work part time.
The officer called me yesterday and told me the man was doing well, taken off the ventilator and will make a full recovery.
So there were eyes watching over him and me that day. I also thank goodness the military trained me well and that all that has stayed with me.
