In June, St. John Ambulance presented four Life Saving Commendations to four individuals who saved a life at a Brandon Wheat Kings game last December.
Three St. John Ambulance Medical First Responders who were on duty that night, along with a nurse who happened to pass by, came to the aid of a gentleman who was in sudden cardiac arrest.
Utilizing their training and skills, these four rescuers commenced CPR, and used an AED to treat the casualty.
Thankfully he survived the event, and returned home from the hospital prior to Christmas.
