Bystanders Save SCA Victim in High School Gym

September 19, 2007–GRAYSLAKE, Ill.–Three bystanders are credited with saving a man’s life while he waited to get into a pick-up basketball game Sunday night at Grayslake Central High School.

Grayslake Fire Protection District Deputy Chief Greg Formica said the victim, a 58-year-old Hainesville man, suffered sudden cardiac arrest and was revived before paramedics reached the school gymnasium.

Formica said the Hainesville man remained at Condell Medical Center in Libertyville on Tuesday. He said use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) is one reason the man is alive.

Jason Bullman, 35, of Grayslake said he was playing in one of the pick-up games when the man, known to him only as Mike, collapsed. About 40 people were present for the open gym time.
