The community in Niagra County USA came together 5 years ago to raise funds to purchase an AED for their sports club after one of their team mates passed away.
Then on 20th December 2018, Tom Mooradin, a fit and healthy 55-year-old, who didn’t look like the type of person to go into cardiac arrest, suddenly did!
“I looked over my shoulder and I said, ‘Oh, three minutes. I’ll get out again,'” Mooradian recalled. “I remember skating to the bench, sitting on the bench. I slide over. That’s all I remember.”
His teammates later filled him in on the rest of the story.
“Ken, who was sitting next to me, panicked and started to yell from what the boys tell me,” Mooradian said. “They all came over and about four of them lifted me over the boards. Four more guys caught me and put me on the ice. They started performing CPR.”
The defibrillator that they purchased 5 years ago was put into use, and his life was saved.
