Location of Event: Cherryville, North CarolinaRescuer(s):
Chandler walked into a restaurant to pick up take out when a man fell due to sudden cardiac arrest. He immediately accessed the man to see if he was breathing and he was not. Chandler is a RN and he immediately asked bystanders to call 911 and he began CPR. He performed CPR on the gentleman for four minutes and 48 seconds.
The gentleman was transported to the hospital and later air lifted to a cardiac hospital where he learned that the back of his heart was only working at 30% and unable to pump blood through his body. Every cardiologist told him that the young man who performed CPR on him knew what he was doing and he had saved his life.
