Home Depot – February 2011
February 15th, 2011, Mark Cross came to Crowell, Weedon & Co. and trained our staff in CPR. I wanted to let you know that Saturday, May 28th I saved a man’s life at Home Depot. I want to thank LifeSafe, Crowell, Weedon and especially our instructor Mark Cross for his incredible knowledge and ability to train in CPR. My daughter also work’s with me at Crowell, Weedon and took the class. She has been certified 6 times and said that Mark was the best instructor she has ever had. At the end of the training, our staff shared with each other that we all felt confident and would not be afraid to perform CPR if the situation presented itself.
A 65 year old man was lying on the ground shaking. I ran over and put my hand under is head to protect it from the concrete floor. Seconds later, his heart stopped. At that moment, everything Mark taught me came quickly to my head and I began CPR. I yelled to my husband to call 911. The song, “Staying alive” came to my head (which Mark played during the class) and I asked a bystander to count to 30 for me. After 3 rounds of 30 chest compressions, the man took a breath. I rolled him to his side and moments later I heard the sirens!
Please pass this on to Lifesafe and Mark Cross for a job well done in CPR training!
