Skiing and saving a life in a day
Spending a father-son bonding, the Julius Nitecki did not expect to save a life while skiing on the slopes of Whitetail Resort on a sunny day. The internal medicine doctor witnessed a man suffer from a severe heart attack on the top slope and immediately sprang into action. While being carried down, Nitecki performed hands-only chest compressions to Jeff Correll, who is unconscious and getting blue from lack of oxygen. Luckily, paramedics were quick to respond and proper care was given to Correll. He owes his life to Nitecki and his son for reviving him during a life and death situation.
Police officer saved with CPR after heart attack
One normal workday, Rich Jones got into the station early to prepare for the day ahead. He didn’t expect that being early would also help save a life on that particular Wednesday. Upon settling in, the scanner of the paramedic picked something up from the Zone 6 police station. It is only 20 feet away from the Medic Three, so Jones sprinted as fast as he can to respond to the distress call. A police officer has suffered a heart attack and needed chest compressions. Jones immediately administered CPR until a pulse can be felt. The officer received further care from the hospital and is now recovering.
EMT-trained students respond well to real-life dangers
The Elco High School recently added an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) training program in their curriculum and it led to the saving of a man in cardiac arrest. The district superintendent, David Zuilkoski is very proud of his students, who responded to a real-life emergency within the school grounds. An elderly suffered a heart attack during a musical program, prompting about a dozen students to rush to the scene with CPR equipment at the ready. The EMT instructor is also there, while at least four students called for 911 and waited for paramedics to arrive. The team effort and EMT knowledge truly contributed to the success of the CPR attempt and the old gentleman was truly grateful for being in a place where CPR-trained students are around.
CPR went for 101 minutes to save drowning toddler
Near drowning in water might be bad, but when temperatures are lower than normal, the situation could be worse. This is exactly what a toddler experienced when he went unconscious after being left alone, floating face down in an icy creek between 20–35 minutes. A neighbor named Randall Beachel got the child out of the water. For a total of 1 hour and 41 minutes, almost 50 people assisted in CPR and other care procedures to bring the boy back to life. When his heart began pulsating, he is being called a medical miracle, as he had survived a tragic ordeal and recovered neurologically.
