On January 25, 2015, a 46 year old security guard went into cardiac arrest at the Toronto Christian Community Church (formerly known as Toronto Chinese Community Church) located at 100 Acadia Ave., in Markham, ON. Fortunately for the victim, the facility was equipped with a MIKEY (defibrillator), and a retired medical doctor who hadn’t practiced for over 20 years, was there to help.
The Dr. used the facility’s MIKEY (AED) to deliver a shock and restore a heart beat. Toronto EMS transported the patient to Scarborough Grace Hospital, where he is now recovering.
We’re so thankful this church had one of our MIKEYs available when it was needed most, and that there was a person willing to help when he was needed most.
The 46 year old man is the 24th life that has been saved using a MIKEY.
