Off-Duty California Cop Saves Man At Gym With CPR, AED

Posted by Thomas Oliver on 7/15/2014 to Lives Saved By AEDs

All gyms should have an AED on hand to help ensure the safety and health of its members. Of course, it also doesnít hurt to have an off-duty trooper hanging around.

Seamus Leavy, a police trooper from Saratoga, Calif., was working out at a local gym when he saw a young man near him collapse.

Luckily, Leavyís training had prepared him for such a life and death moment. Upon determining that the 23-year-old was unconscious and not breathing, Leavy began administering CPR.

Though this was enough to briefly get him breathing again, it wasnít until a gym employee (who had already called the paramedics) brought over the gymís AED that Leavy was able to get the victim out of the woods.

It took two shocks and some more CPR, but the young victim ultimately began breathing on his own, regained consciousness, and was actually up on his feet when the paramedics arrived.

Itís safe to say that Leavyís actions saved the young manís life. In fact, the data downloaded from the AED showed that, had Leavy not acted as quickly as he had, thereís a very good chance the victim would not have survived.

The beauty of AEDs, however, is that you donít need to be a police officer to use one to save someoneís life.

In this case, Leavyís police training allowed him to act quickly and calmly, but just preparing yourself with a little knowledge, you can also be the difference in a life or death scenario.

Find a local CPR class today, and make sure that your gym has an AED on hand!
