Location of Event: GymRescuer(s):
I went into cardiac arrest when I was 17-years-old while working at a local basketball camp. No one did CPR right away. There was no AED on site. Bob got the 911 call on his pager while he was sitting at his desk in the building next door working his day job. He came over to the scene, found me turning blue, and gasping. He performed CPR perfectly until an ambulance arrived with an AED. Without Bob, I would not be here today!
