Bystander CPR and the use of AED helped to save his life!

As Mr Gardner Yost, M.D., a resident physician, had just ended work, he witnessed an accident and pulled over his car to find the driver unconscious. Immediately, he opened the driver’s side door and checked his pulse. After realising a faint pulse, he pulled him out of the vehicle and performed CPR while instructing another bystander to call the ambulance. Soon after, first responders from the Ann Arbor Fire and Police departments arrived on the scene. They brought along an AED and used it, after the shock was delivered, they continued CPR until the ambulance arrived. Thanks to their efforts, Mr Wafi Thabateh survived!
