Players Save Teammate at Rink

NORTH BAY, ONTARIO--Hockey players in North Bay used a defibrillator to save the life of a teammate twice last month in separate incidents just two weeks apart.

The latest incident occurred Jan. 24 during a North Bay Labatt’s Mercantile Oldtimers Hockey League game at the West Ferris Arena.

Bill Copeman, 58, was on the bench when he suddenly collapsed and had to be revived by his teammates with CPR and an automated external defibrillator machine.

Copeman is now recovering at a Sudbury hospital thanks to the presence of a defibrillator at the arena and the fast actions of his teammates Todd Shortt, Cameron Merry and Brent Tremblay, who put the device to use.

Tremblay was watching the play from the bench with Copeman when he looked over and saw that his teammate had dropped to his knees.
