Jogger rescued by a city worker with timely CPR

An Ottawa worker and a bystander saved the life of a jogger. The Ottawa paramedics recognize them for saving the life of a jogger whose heart stopped. The incident occurred near the intersection of Holitman and Foxfield drives, at Neill Nesbitt Park.

The jogger, a man in his 60s collapsed and was found by Troy Featherston, a city parks employee, and another bystander. The two started CPR and continued until the arrival of the paramedics.

The paramedics gave the man two shocks using a defibrillator and injected him with epinephrine. Circulation was restored and was able to breathe and move on his own. He was transported to a hospital where he was listed in critical but stable condition.

When CPR is initiated by bystanders, it serves as one of the crucial links of the chain of survival for cardiac arrests. Without this important step, the chances of survival are greatly diminished.
