Where Are the AEDs at Kennedy Airport?


Two doctors from Long Island are credited with saving the life of a man at Kennedy Airport.

He went into cardiac arrest inside terminal 4 Wednesday night and the doctors came to the rescue, despite some challenges.

"Where are the AEDs? Why isn't it more available to the public? Why can't we find it, why can't we see it?" said Dr. Bruce Decter, a cardiologist.

One of them was critically needed at JFK's terminal 4 after a passenger suddenly collapsed and started to turn blue.

"I felt the pulse. I listened for breathing. I found none. I started the CPR," Dr. Decter said.

With Dr. Scott Danoff, a dentist at his side, Dr. Decter also asks someone to call 911 and for the AED.

"I really repeated, 'Where's the AED?'" Dr. Decter said.
