Hockey Players to be Recognized for Lifesaving Actions

Kirkwood, MO--The Kirkwood City Council will recognize a group of hockey players whose prompt and decisive action saved the life of a fellow player during a game at the Kirkwood Ice Rink.

The Jaguars and the Renegades, of the Hockey North America League, were playing at the rink Nov. 14 when the Renegade's goaltender collapsed at 10:14 p.m., according to a statement from the City of Kirkwood.

Ice rink manager Mike Krafft quickly called 911. Brian Robinson, of the Jaguars, performed CPR on the victim while Craig Merrifield, of the Renegades, retrieved a public access automated external defibrillator (AED). Don Guenther, of the Jaguars, who was trained in using an AED, applied the device. Following audio instructions from the machine, Guenther delivered two shocks to restart the victim's heart. Robinson continued CPR between shocks and until paramedics arrived, the city says.
