Sheriff’s Deputy Awarded for Saving Life with CPR and AED

To Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy Ethan Moss, February 4th response to a 911 call was just part of the routine, but for homeowners, Tim and Roby Bush, Deputy Moss was a hero that day.  Upon finding Tim Bush unresponsive and not breathing, Deputy Moss immediately administered the automated external defibrillator (AED) and started CPR.  After just 2 minutes, Bush began breathing on his own and was transported to the hospital. The 54 year old has since been discharged from the Hospital and made a full recovery.  Deputy Moss received a Commendation award for saving the man’s life.

Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson presents Deputy Ethan Moss with a commendation award for saving a man’s life.

Deputy Moss, a four year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, husband and father of two boys, and United States Army veteran, is no stranger to saving lives. In July of 2015, Moss also saved a 62 year old man by administering an AED and CPR.

Law enforcement is often the first on scene to a medical emergency. Receiving CPR and first aid training and carrying an AED enables them to act quickly to save a life.  Deputy Moss was quick to apply his training to save a life; Mr. and Mrs. Bush couldn’t be more grateful.

Brave and courageous 7-yr old girl helps save a 6-yr old boy from drowning at local water park – CPR + AED News

Margate, FL – It was the first Saturday after school ended, a perfect day to enjoy being outside. Like all kids this time of year, Christine Regina asked her grandmother to take her to Calypso Cove Water Park in Margate, FL. Every summer, Christine, a Port St. Lucie resident looks forward to spending time with her grandparents because the water park is near their home. On Saturday, June 18th. they spent most of the morning there, but once the afternoon started progressing, grandma Penny told Christine “Ten More minutes” to leave the facility. Christine obeyed and gathered her water gear. She swam around wearing her goggles before leaving and started to dive underwater. On one of the dives she noticed something unusual at the bottom of the pool.

The video below captures Christine speaking about her reaction to finding the boy.

She realized he was not acting normal and needed help. She quickly grabbed the nearest person, which happened to be 15 yr old Rebecca Valbrun. The teenage girl followed Christine underwater and saw the little boy too. Rebecca started yelling for help, catching the attention of the lifeguards on duty. The two girls bravely pulled up the little boy’s body and brought him to the surface. He was placed on his back poolside and the lifeguards started performing CPR. Emergency services were called and thankfully an AED was readily available.  The lifeguards deployed the defibrillator and with it brought back the little boy. He spent two days recovering from the incident and according to his mom, he is now stable and well.

By Sunday, Christine was a town hero. The Margate Mayor, Tommy Ruzzano,  visited the family at their home to thank her for her actions and awarded Christine with a public recognition certificate “for being aware, alert and responsive, in preventing a possible drowning and saving a life on June 18, 2016.”

We are so proud of this young girl.

During summer and especially when near or around water, young children should have constant supervision. Accidents can happen in a moment. Prevent a tragedy by following our recommendations – visit our Facebook page to read more.

 

Here Comes the Bride, Performs CPR and Saves A Life

Andrew Nixon and Julie Stroyne Nixon

Pittsburgh newlyweds, Andrew Nixon and Julie Stroyne Nixon, left their wedding reception at almost midnight intending to check into their hotel. As luck would have it, just before they headed through the hotel’s doors, someone shouted, “Does anybody know CPR? Is anybody a doctor?” Still in her wedding gown, Julie, a trauma nurse at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, headed over to help. On a park bench was a woman barely breathing.

Julie Stroyne Nixon

“I looked over, and I think my nursing instincts took over,” she recalls. She began to administer CPR. “I started compressions right away. They told me she didn’t have a pulse.” Little by little, the woman regained consciousness. Julie stayed with her and tried to make sure she didn’t fall. By the time paramedics arrived, the woman was doing much better.

Having known Julie since childhood, her husband offers, “Nothing quite compares with saving a life. It was a heroic act, but I’ve known her for long enough, I’m not surprised at all.”

Julie adds, “It really did seem that we were in the right place at the right time.”
