Great news! On Sunday October 18th, a 28th life was Saved By A Mikey.
A 40 year old male was participating in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon when he collapsed, suffering from both dehydration and hypothermia.
Fortunately, our friends at the Kawartha Sky Loft Ski Patrol were on hand with a MIKEY defibrillator. After two shocks, the patient regained a heart rhythm and is now recuperating in a nearby hospital.
Sky Loft Ski Patrol members volunteer their services at various events throughout the GTA. The Mikey Network has donated several defibrillators to their organization. We are so thankful that one of our MIKEYs was available when it was needed most, and that the volunteers who generously donated their time were on hand and ready to help.
This is the 28th life that has been saved using a MIKEY.
