Boulder Fire-Rescue recently presented several community members with a Life Saving award after they saved a man at a local pool.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Scott Sorensen was on a chair at Scott Carpenter Pool in Boulder, Colo., when he appeared to have a seizure. Lifeguards responded, while ICU nurse Nicole Carnelli was also at the pool and rushed to Sorensen’s side. She couldn’t find a pulse and began chest compressions.
Trew Mundy, Mick Konstantopoulos and Tim Stabbe reportedly applied an automated external defibrillator, took over chest compressions and applied supplemental oxygen. While still unresponsive, Sorensen regained his pulse after one round of CPR. Casey Hopkins called 911.
“Because of their combined efforts Sorensen is anticipated to make a full recovery,” Boulder Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said, according to the Daily Camera. “The recognition of the medical emergency, and immediate initiation of chest compressions, were key to this positive outcome.”
