Bedford teacher saves husband with CPR

A Bedford teacher was recognized for saving the life of her husband with CPR. Kyle Schmeisser returned home complaining of chest pain after playing hockey. The discomfort was going across his chest and moving into his left arm.

Saving a loved one

The couple was at the front of their home debating on what to do. Tricia wanted to call 911 but Kyle wanted her to drive him to the hospital. It was then that he collapsed near the front door.

Tricia immediately called 911 and the dispatcher guided her on what to do. Although she suspected that he was having a heart attack, it looked more like a seizure and she was uncertain if he was not breathing. The dispatcher asked if an AED is on hand and at that moment, she had to flip him over.

Sylvain Jacquard was one of the paramedics who arrived on the scene. He stated that Tricia’s efforts made a big difference in the outcome of the incident.

Kyle could not recall much on what happened that day but he was lucky that his wife was on his side.
