The man who was given CPR at the Canmore Lake incident was identified. The 28-year old, Kyu-Heon Sim was a friendly, good-hearted man and easy with a smile.
Employed as a supervisor at the Calgary Leon’s store, Sim was spending his day off swimming at Canmore’s Quarry Lake when local emergency crews received calls about a swimmer in distress.
Calling to bystanders for help, he slipped beneath the surface of the water before rescuers were able to reach him.
He was found unresponsive soon after and CPR was started as EMS arrived on scene. Sadly, he was declared dead after he was rushed to a hospital.
The immediate delivery of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can make a big difference in the outcome of emergencies. If promptly delivered, it can significantly improve the chances of survival. If you want to be prepared during emergencies, it is recommended to enroll in a first aid course today.
