Man Saves Neighbor’s Life 40 Years After Learning CPR

It’s been forty years since Bob McKeeby learned CPR. He was a senior in high school and they were offering classes, so he took one. But he never expected to still remember how to perform the life-saving technique almost four decades later.

The man he saved, who did not wish to be named, was being driven to the hospital by his wife when he lost consciousness and stopped breathing. His wife frantically called around for help, and luckily McKeeby was there. He called 911 and started CPR immediately. First responders and medical personnel arrived just minutes after, but they still praised McKeeby for his actions. Intervening as soon as possible is the best way to ensure that the victim will survive. ““It’s a classic example of early intervention and applying CPR right away. You don’t get those opportunities too often,” First Aid Squad Captain Gary Posey said of the situation.

The victim was flown to a nearby hospital where he later underwent surgery. He underwent weeks of recovery and rehabilitation, and was then finally able to thank the man who saved his life.
