While enjoying a day at an Elk Grove golf course, Sgt. Anthony Marquez put his training to use to help save a man’s life.
On Dec. 21, the R.A. McGee Correctional Training Center staff member saw 55-year-old man collapse at the golf course. Realizing the man was having a heart attack, he told others to call 911 as he rushed to the man’s aid.
Sgt. Marquez found the man had no pulse and had stopped breathing. He immediately started life-saving measures by performing Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) until help could arrive.
Soon, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Fire Chief K. Hubbard, from the Cosumnes Fire Department, arrived on scene.
Chief Hubbard administered the automated external defibrillation and necessary lifesaving medications. Due to Sgt. Marquez and EMT Chief Hubbard’s quick actions, the subject was resuscitated transported via ambulance to a local hospital.
The heart-attack victim is reported to be doing well and is in stable condition.
