CPR Save


A woman whose husband suffered a near fatal heart attack on a construction site in Fond du Lac last August will get the opportunity today to thank the paramedics and firefighters that helped save his life. The 48-year-old man went down complaining of “chest pains.” His foreman located him and started doing CPR. The man had no pulse and wasn’t breathing. When firefighters arrived they were able to revive him and take him to St. Agnes Hospital. Division Chief Troy Haase says their firefighters don’t always talk about their saves, but the man’s wife wanted to meet the people responsible for saving her husband’s life. He says it is an opportunity to also educate the public about the importance of early CPR and calling 911 as soon as possible. Haase also credits the hospital and its staff for the care they provided so the man could eventually be released from the hospital. The man returns to work next week. A press conference will be held about the successful save at Fire Station #1 on South Main Street this afternoon at 2 p.m.
