Bystanders moved Burman off the road while a young man started to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

A man was performing CPR and this restored Burman’s breathing. He was looking around but passed out again.

Timely rescue

Burman was quickly transported to a healthcare facility and survived. After he was hospitalized, his wife was able to talk to the young man who delivered CPR. The man was Dylan Duncan and he had only received CPR certification 2 week earlier.

As an indispensable life-saving skill, getting a certification in CPR will surely come in handy. By enrolling in a first aid and CPR training class, it will provide you with the necessary skills to deal with minor injuries or even emergency scenarios when a life is on the line.
