A Clarenville man was
given recognition for saving the life of a man while working at the Hebron Gravity
Base Structure site.
Adrian Tarrant of
Clarenville together with Jamie Budden and Ashley Perham were among the recipients
to receive an award for their acts of bravery.
The trio worked together to save the life of an unconscious colleague by delivering CPR and utilizing an AED to revive the man. They were members of the emergency response team for the site at the time the incident occurred.
Tarrant and Perham
arrived at the site after receiving a call over the radio where Budden was
already delivering CPR.
According to Tarrant,
it is 100% team effort. Everybody has an individual role or all share the same
roles. One individual cannot do it alone. The 3 emergency responders continued
to perform CPR. An AED was utilized and an IV line was started.
After giving a second
shock from the AED, they were able to restore a pulse and the man was
transported to a healthcare facility via an ambulance.
The trio were commended
for their rapid actions, teamwork and knowledge and utilizing first aid in
helping save a life.
