Rochester Engine 5 CPR Save

Taken from Engine 5 Facebook Page:

Friday afternoon Engine 5 answered a walk up at the firehouse. The woman pointed to a box truck across the street that had ran into a light pole. With the help of some bystanders, who had seen the whole event unfold, the members of Engine 5 removed the man from the truck and quickly discovered he had suffered a severe medical emergency and needed CPR. Firefighters started performing medical care and attached the AED. After several minutes Rural/Metro arrived, the paramedic quickly joined Engine 5 and started performing advanced level EMS care. After several minutes of care, the patient regained a pulse and even was able to answer some questions. Rural/Metro transported the patient to Strong, with a firefighter on board to assist in providing EMS.
