Lebanon Bi-Mart Employees To Be Honored for Live-Saving Actions

Tuesday, December 22, 2015

 

Two Lebanon Bi-Mart employees will be honored by the Lebanon Fire District for their quick thinking and acting to save a woman experiencing cardiac arrest in the store.

On November 23, the Lebanon Fire District responded to the report of a woman in cardiac arrest at the Lebanon Bi-Mart store. When paramedics arrived, they found a woman on the ground with two Bi-Mart employees performing CPR on the woman. 

Paramedics quickly confirmed the patient was in cardiac arrest and performed advanced life-saving measures before transporting her to a local hospital. 
The Fire District will honor the two employees, Kanren Lee and Molly Hotchkiss at a ceremony on December 23.

The pair “knew exactly what to do when the moments counted,” the Fire District said in a statement. Hotchkiss initiated effective CPR and Lee provided support. Their actions led to a positive outcome for the woman, who was discharged from the hospital two days after the incident.

The Lebanon Fire District would like to remind everyone how important early and effective CPR is. According to the American Heart Association, the survival chance for a victim in cardiac arrest drops 7 percent for each minute that CPR is not done.
