Dec. 8th brought out HEROES in many CLS and EMT among us.
Ken Little and Andrew Christou were the first ones on site who noticed something was SERIOUSLY WRONG and started CPR on Steve right away.
There was Ed Morlan, Joe Hulog, Guy Ayal, John Sanna (that's right, owner of Sanna Ranch where we do Hac Bao), Ricky (Sanna) Stoner, Brad Aston, Timothy Reynolds, among several others whose names I didn't catch (and please DO let me know, PLEASE). You men dropped everything around you and focused on saving a friend in need. I saw the line you formed to give CPR (our own Sgt. Kenn "War Lord" Miller among them), one following another. I saw you breath into Steve's mouth; you didn't quit even when he vomited back up. Tom Watson and Sasha HSUCZKY were also quick to contacted 911 emergency.
I'm honored and humbled to be able to associate myself with you men.
While we want to take care of our fallen friend, I won't forget all of you who kneel as group to have a moment of silence.
I'll make arrangement with the property ownership and re-schedule LCAD 2007, even if it has to be in Spring 2008.........we will not let Steve die in vain.
Of course, there will be no additional fee for those of you who are on the ROSTER to attend the re-schedule LCAD 2007.
Dec. 8th was a tragic day, but it also proved that our community has class.
