Instead of panicking or passing the buck, six Victorians stepped up to perform CPR during three separate medical emergencies. On Wednesday, B.C. Ambulance Service recognized their role in saving a life.
Most recently, on Jan. 13, Denyce Krupa was walking past a barber shop when the barber Paul Goodwin called her in to assist an elderly man in the chair. Goodwin relayed step-by-step instructions from dispatchers while Krupa performed CPR, until paramedics arrived.
Other award recipients include Scott and Holly Coulter, Nathan Gilmore and Sharon Montgomery.
