Off-Duty Nurses Save Man’s Life at Lansing Gym – The Good News
Talk about being in the right place at the right time!
Shayanna Conley-Whitley is a respiratory therapist at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing and, on Monday morning, she decided to work out at Planet Fitness with her husband instead of going to her own gym.
While she was exercising, she felt a tap on her shoulder and thought that it was her husband. Turns out, there was nobody there. When she turned around, she saw a group of people crowding around an elderly man who had collapsed.
Shayanna ran over to help. Luckily, one of her coworkers from the hospital was there, too. They used an AED to shock his heart back into rhythm.
When the paramedics arrived, the man had a pulse.
Shayanna says that she doesn't feel like a hero; she was just doing her job.
