I took your course this past spring and I just wanted to send you a note to let you know what happened at work this week. One of my co-workers (Dale) collapsed at work yesterday. I got to him and he looked grey! I checked him and he wasn’t breathing so I started CPR. I questioned myself a few times wondering if this was right but I remembered my training and kept going. We don’t have an AED and I was really wishing we did! Fortunately the paramedics arrived really fast. They came in and kept me doing CPR while they got everything set up. They applied the defibrillator and told me to stop compressions, they gave a shock and DaleĀ gasped and started breathing on his own. After a few minutes he was conscious and talking. One of the paramedics said to me “You saved a life today!”. I’ve just heard that Dale is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery! I couldn’t have done this without you, thank you so much for what you do!!
