Bradford Woods, PA, Woman's Heroic Story Exemplifies Foundation's Objective

Sue HostlerPITTSBURGH, PA--Instinct took over when Sue Hostler of Bradford Woods encountered a young man face down in an elevator at the Philadelphia International Airport.

She had been racing for an elevator on her way to the parking garage. When she saw Bob Hallinan's unconscious body on the elevator floor, she knew exactly what to do.

The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, based in Pine Township, is using her story to call attention to Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month, which is October, and the importance of learning CPR.

When she came across the man during a business trip in August, Hostler told one nearby woman to flag down the police or an emergency vehicle curbside and got another woman to help her turn the victim onto his back.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
