He Was Just Stopping At The Store
Nate Howard has explained what happened to him and why he is now urging everyone he can to learn CPR. He recounts that he was visiting the store with his wife, it was a typical day, and he wasn’t expecting anything to go wrong. However, they noticed an older man was lying in the road, and he wasn’t getting up.
He Immediately Went To Help Him
Nate immediately rushed to his side to try and help. There was another man who had already stopped to help and was trying to find the man’s pulse but without success. The two pulled the man out of the road and started chest compressions immediately. Chest compressions are hard work, but the two kept them up for as long as they had to.
After a small while, Paramedics turned up and took over. They had to use a defibrillator on the man to try to save him. Thanks to Nate and the other helper, they were able to stabilize the man and get him to a hospital. It turned out that the guy had suffered from a heart attack.
He Was Contacted By The Man
Nate was told that if he hadn’t sprung into action the way he did, then the man, whose name is Stephen, wouldn’t have survived. The man plays Santa Claus every year in his hometown.
Nate explained that if he didn’t know what to do, Stephen wouldn’t be alive today, so everyone should learn CPR.
