An Exceptional Save
Community-wide Emergency Care Saves Barnhart Resident
Barnhart resident Ronald Jones was at home on New Year’s Eve, feeling blessed. As he watched a whirlwind of planning activity surrounding his daughter’s upcoming wedding, Jones suddenly slumped over in a kitchen chair. His wife called 9-1-1, and daughter Ashley, who happened to be a nursing student, started immediate CPR. Thanks to lifesaving efforts by her, EMS crews and St. Anthony’s emergency room physicians and cardiologists, Jones survived. In May 2012, he walked Ashley down the aisle at her wedding. “It was so unbelievable,” he says. “Everyone clapped.”
