Hooray for quick thinking and compassion for strangers!

It seems that a man suffered a heart attack on the Schuylkill River Trail on May 31st, and passersby saved his life. The family (and the man, who is recovering) are trying to find those good people. The Schuylkill River Heritage Area organization is helping spread the word; see their message below:

Can you help us? The family of a man who suffered a heart attack on the Schuylkill River Trail is trying to find and thank those who helped save his life. The incident happened around 10am on May 31, just south of Conchohocken near the Miquon train station. He had a sudden cardiac arrest and one or more bystanders saw him fall off of his bike and performed CPR while calling 911. Amazingly, not only did he survive, but he’s just about fully recovered. The family would like to somehow find and thank those that saved his life. If you have any information please call the Schuylkill River Heritage Area at 484-945-0200 or email us atinfo@schuylkillriver.org.
