Portable MIKEY (AED) used to save infant

We’ve been informed that 2 more people, an infant and a high school student, have been given a second chance at life because a MIKEY (defibrillator) was available when they needed it.


Greenwood SSOn January 8, 2015, a 19 year old student at Greenwood S.S., in Toronto, went into cardiac arrest.

Their MIKEY was used and a pulse was established, and he was brought to the hospital for further treatment. No further details are available at this time.

 

 


On January 10, 2015, one of our newest Mikey’s Kids families needed to use their portable AED to save their infant, Archer. Archer’s parents happen to be paramedics, and his dad Sean, shared this on Twitter:


The MIKEY at Greenwood S.S. was placed through our Mikey Young At Heart School Defibrillator Program, and Archer’s MIKEY was given to them through our Mikey’s Kids program.

We are so grateful that there was a MIKEY available for Archer and at Greenwood S.S., and most importantly, that there were people prepared to use them.

There are now 23 people that been given a second chance at life because a MIKEY was available when they needed it!
