OSCEOLA, Ind. (WNDU)- An Osceola man is lucky to be alive after two co-workers and a complete stranger stepped in to provide aid when he went into cardiac arrest.
Only five percent of people who go into cardiac arrest outside of the hospital survive. Performing CPR is a skill many of us learn, but hope we never have to use.
Thanks to the work of two clerks at the Osceola Post Office and a teenage customer in line, custodian Paul Anderson is now alive and well.
“Every one of them played a part in that,” Anderson said. “Had they not learned it, I wouldn’t be here today.”
