Trooper, Off-Duty Firefighter/EMT and Nurse Revive New Hampshire Man
Vanderburgh County – This morning at approximately 11:30, an 80-year-old New Hampshire man became unresponsive while sitting in traffic on St. Joseph Avenue just north of the Lloyd Expressway. Carrie Weber, a Perry Twp. Firefighter/EMT and an unidentified female nurse were nearby and initiated CPR. Senior Trooper Seth Rainey was also stopped in traffic, but was unaware that a person was unresponsive and CPR was being administered until a male subject ran back to his vehicle. Trooper Rainey grabbed his Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and delivered one shock before reviving the patient. The New Hampshire man was transported to Deaconess Midtown by AMR and is currently being treated. Job well done by all involved! The Evansville Police assisted with traffic while the patient was being treated at the scene.
With the help from “Bolt for the Heart” organization and Deaconess HeartSaver, every Indiana State Trooper in the Evansville District is equipped with an AED.
