Man Honored for Saving a Stranger’s Life with CPR

Greg Johnson was out for a bike ride when he start feeling dizzy and passed out. Bystanders immediately went over to see what was wrong, but none of them knew what to do. But Dr. John Bowling, a psychology professor at Southern Oregon University, knew that he had to help. He began CPR compressions until Johnson was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent a life-saving operation.

Johnson is now well on his way to recovery, and he owes a big part of that to Bowling. Johnson and his wife Cheryl have even made Bowling an honorary member of their family, and hope to spend time with him and his family later this year.

Bowling was also honored at the Southern Oregon Safety and Health Conference at Central Medford School for his lifesaving efforts. He was praised for his quick action – successful CPR is a result of starting compressions as soon as you can. “Don’t be afraid to get in there and do it,” Sen. Alan Bates, a medical doctor, said.

As part of his award, Bowling was given an AED machine which he will donate to Mount Ashad, the place where he first learned CPR.

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!
