Firefighters Save 79-Year-Old Man’s Life
Two firefighters in Paulding County are being praised as heroes after rescuing the life of a 79-year-old man.
The remarkable rescue holds special significance for the firefighters, as they were able to witness a moment rarely seen by first responders.
The County family is expressing their gratitude for the firefighters who revived their 79-year-old father and husband.
Initially, the man’s condition seemed dire, but the persistence of the firefighters made all the difference.
The local first responders’ support group, known as the Jets Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation, learned about the heroic actions of the firefighters and reached out to FOX 5 News to highlight their incredible work.
Samantha Rousey, the founder of the Jets Rousey Honoring Heroes Foundation, who herself lost her father, wanted to honor the memory of her father by paying tribute to local heroes.
Her organization decided to celebrate the actions of Joshua Hill, one of the firefighters involved in the life-saving rescue.
On a fateful afternoon in April, County firefighters received a distress call regarding a cardiac arrest patient.
The firefighters wasted no time and quickly arrived at the scene with a defibrillator device to restore the man’s heart rhythm.
It is well-known that the chances of survival greatly increase when cardiac arrest patients receive immediate defibrillation.
Typically, first responders are unaware of the outcomes for the patients they assist.
Their primary goal is to stabilize and transport patients to the hospital, leaving the medical professionals to continue the necessary care.
However, in this case, the 79-year-old man displayed signs of survival even before reaching the hospital.
The appreciation and admiration for the firefighters’ work were expressed by the County family.
The feeling of relief and gratitude upon seeing the firefighters arrive to save their loved one is indescribable.
Samantha Rousey organizes appreciation events to ensure that these deserving heroes receive the recognition they deserve.
While the two firefighters remain humble, they emphasize that anyone can perform heroic acts.
Such incidents occur every day, and one never knows when or where they might happen.
They encourage everyone to learn CPR and become prepared to assist in emergency situations.
According to County Fire, the man who survived the cardiac arrest is currently recovering.
