Bystander's Heroic Actions Mean the Difference Between Life and Death for Young Victim, Reports Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation

PITTSBURGH, PA--Sue Hostler arrived at the Philadelphia International Airport in late August to catch a flight home to Pittsburgh, PA. A frequent business traveler, she knew her way around the airport and ran to get on an elevator in a remote area used for commuter flights. A young man entered the elevator before her, but the doors closed before she could join him. When she hit the “up” button and the doors reopened, she was stunned by what she saw. There he was, face down, not moving, an apparent victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
