Lee's Summit Fire Department And Missouri State Patrol Save Life

February 25, 2014

On February 25, 2014, at approximately 7:47 a.m., a 67-year-old Napolean, Missouri, resident suffered an apparent heart attack in the parking lot of the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Motor Vehicle Inspection/Driver Examination facility, 1950 NE Independence, Lee's Summit, Missouri.   

A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper and a Missouri State Highway Patrol commercial vehicle officer responded to the area and observed an unconscious, white male victim lying on the ground, surrounded by other citizens.  The officers performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation until emergency medical services from Lee's Summit arrived and took over.  EMS personnel applied several shocks from an automated external defibrillator before transporting the man to St. Luke's Medical Center (East) emergency room.

Medical personnel later confirmed the victim had suffered an apparent heart attack and had regained consciousness.  Patrol personnel also identified a 31-year-old Kansas City, Missouri, citizen who was on scene and played a vital role in notifying other Patrol personnel to contact EMS.  The citizen also attempted to perform CPR prior to the Patrol's arrival.  The victim was attempting to unload a vehicle from a trailer for inspection when he suffered the apparent heart attack.

    Why not give the names of the officers involved so as to give proper recognition for their actions ?
