Defibrillator on Saskatoon golf course helps save man's life
Some heroic actions over the weekend at a Saskatoon golf course may have
saved a man's life. The dramatic scene unfolded at the fourth hole of the
Holiday Park golf course Sunday morning around 10 a.m.
A 48-year-old went into cardiac arrest. One person called 911, another called the pro shop. Staff raced over with the on-site defibrillator. The man was shocked once while waiting for paramedics to arrive.
By the time he got to Royal University Hospital, the man had a pulse and was breathing. At last report he was in critical condition.
Troy Davies with MD Ambulance said the actions of everyone involved have given the man a chance to survive.
The defibrillator was on the golf course as part of the Heart and Safe Program. It has now saved 11 lives since being introduced.
Back in December, the program helped save a 58-year-old man after he went into cardiac arrest at the Agri-Twins Arena.
Two people who saved his life will be recognized for their heroic actions next month.
