A customer’s life was saved at the Eaton Centre on July 25th, at a national retail store. While walking down the aisle, they suddenly collapsed, and the store employees grabbed their Rescue 7 AED.
As the 911 operator instructed them to use the AED, their question of “how?” were quickly answered as the AED used audio and visual prompts to guide them through the save. Upon EMS arrival, the employees were amazed at how easy it was to use the AED, and couldn’t believe they delivered a life-saving shock in just a few short minutes from the time of collapse.
The patient is doing well, and we’d like to commend the efforts of those involved in saving a life.
