Bakersfield , CA

At 10:23 a.m. one of KCFD’s Battalion Chiefs was leaving our headquarters, heading East on Olive Dr. when he saw a group of bystanders performing CPR on the sidewalk. He immediately pulled over and began assisting with CPR. Bystanders witnessed the patient suddenly fall over while walking down Olive Drive and go into cardiac arrest. CPR was started immediately and quick actions by the Battalion Chief and an off duty KCFD Captain allowed for an Automatic Electronic Defibrillator to be placed on the patient early in the CPR process. Three shocks were delivered and a pulse was regained but the patient remained unconscious. When ambulance crews arrived on scene they were able to deliver another shock with their equipment and the patient regained consciousness. The patient was transported to a local hospital.
