FORT HOOD, Texas — A Fort Hood Soldier (Capt. Kevin Barry) is credited with saving the life of a Towne Services moving company employee who suffered a heart attack while working inside the Soldier’s home recently.
Barry performed life-saving measures when one of his movers collapsed under cardiac arrest. The Army captain immediately checked for responsiveness before proceeding to rescue breathing and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation. Barry then alerted the neighbors to the situation, coordinated a 911 call, and applied wet towels and ice to the victim’s body, all while performing CPR on the victim until emergency medical technicians arrived. The victim was successfully transported to a local hospital where he remains in serious condition.
