Baseball Umpire Saves Field Worker’s Life Thanks to CPR

Jim Joyce, an umpire at Chase Field in Phoenix, is best known for his famous blown call, which can cost a pitcher a perfect game. But now, it seems that he’s known for something else: being a hero. Jane Powers, a ballpark server, had just finished her routine laps around the field when she felt her muscles start to contract. Powers felt a little off and went over to her friend to share her concerns when she collapsed.

Joyce was on his way to the umpire locker room when he saw Powers fall, and sprang into action. Having previously taken CPR courses, he knew exactly what to do. Thanks to his quick thinking, Powers made a full recovery and is back at work at Chase Field.

Powers says the incident really opened her eyes to the importance of taking CPR classes and getting certified. She’s recently started throwing parties that involve teaching CPR to her friends and family. One of those friends even went on to save another person’s life because of her party.

My husband and I hired Precious Hearts to come teach us CPR in our home and we had a WONDERFUL experience! Grace is a fantastic teacher and we learned so much. She had all the proper equipment for us to get lots of practice, she gave lots of real-world examples, and overall she made the process really fun and positive. Our nanny came for the 2nd half of the class and she reviewed the CPR and choking rescue procedures with her as well. I sleep better at night knowing that we received great training and I would HIGHLY recommend Precious Hearts for anyone considering CPR training. Thank you Precious Hearts Team!
