A male teacher, approximately 60 years old, went into cardiac arrest yesterday at Western Technical Commercial School, in Toronto, Ontario.
With the assistance of other staff members, and their MIKEY (defibrillator), he was successfully resuscitated and taken to the hospital.
Western Technical Commercial School is a high school in the Toronto District School Board, and this MIKEY was placed there, along with all TDSB high schools, through our Mikey Young At Heart program.
We’re so grateful this MIKEY (defibrillator) was available when it was needed most, and that there were people willing to step up and act when they were needed most, to give this man a second chance at life. We pray he has a full recovery.
This is the 26th life that has been saved using a MIKEY.
