Vegas Bound Fire Fighter Bachelor Party Saves Man’s Life

If I ever have a medical emergency, I hope the plane is packed with fire fighters!  (Hopefully on their way to a bachelor party, not on their way home from one).

A groom-to-be and his fellow firefighting buddies saved a man’s life when he started having major cardiac issues in-flight.

From First Coast News:

Kerr took off for Vegas with his groomsmen Tuesday to celebrate his bachelor party. During his second flight of the day, he heard an announcement on the plane asking for any passengers with medical experience. He and two from his group stepped up to help.

“What really concerned us was his [passenger] skin color was ash and grey, his lips were blue, or what we call cyanotic, and while we were assessing him we couldn’t actually obtain a regular pulse,” said Kerr.

But I hope if I ever need help on a flight, there’s bachelor or bachlorette party full of firefighters on board!
