Hockey Goalie Saves Fan… During a Game!

Patrick O’Brien is a goalie for the Gander Flyers, but as of last week, he can add “lifesaver” to his resume!

O’Brien was in the locker room getting ready for a game when he heard that someone in the stands had gone into cardiac arrest. The goalie, who had just become a certified EMT five months ago, immediately rushed out,¬†wearing his skates, hockey pants and just one shin pad, and found the middle-aged man unconscious without a pulse. O’Brien began compressions until medical personnel arrived with defibrillators. The man was rushed to the hospital where it is said that he’s making a full recovery, all thanks to O’Brien and his heroic efforts.

As for O’Brien? He doesn’t see it as anything special. “Anyone would have done what I did,” he told the local newspaper.

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!
