Akron Nurses Commended for Heroic Actions

COLUMBUS — State Rep. Anthony DeVitis (R-District 36) recently presented Ohio House commendations to two local nurses who saved the life of runner Tony Lindeman in the Akron Marathon Sept. 29.

Lindeman was one of 13,000 running in the marathon that day, and as he neared the second mile marker, he collapsed and stopped breathing, according to DeVitis’ office. Heather Pariso, a part-time surgical nurse at Akron City Hospital, manually pumped his heart for several minutes while Lynne Trenkelbach, a nurse at Akron General Medical Center, performed mouth-to-mouth until an ambulance arrived. Paramedics used a defibrillator to restart Lindeman’s heart.
