Sending prayers to an unknown family

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

When I arrived at my gym last night, an emergency vehicle was pulling up. I wasn't worried, last time it was due to someone injuring a shoulder during a work out. Tonight was different. I walked towards the treadmills and noticed four emergency workers (fire men I think) around a man on the floor. I walked to the other set of treadmills and saw that they were performing CPR! Two other crews of EMTs came in and after 20 minutes they got him loaded onto a gurney, still performing CPR, and left. Other members of the rescue crews were with his wife, who was very upset.
I think I watched someone die last night. I am very upset. It is the first time something like this has ever happened when I was there.

    How sad for that family and upsetting for you to see. I'm sorry this happened. Prayers to his family. I'm sure you'll find out what happened. Take care!

    He may have survived, sweetie. Sometimes it just takes a bit for the CPR to do it's magic. Keep a good thought and pray. It must have been scarey and yet cool to watch the EMTs do their work! They are like well-oiled machinery! (((HUGS)))

    I am so sorry too that you saw this, it is very upsetting to see something like this happen and so close to where you are. Prayers for the wife and family and thank you for sharing so we can pray.

    Hope all is well for that man and his family. I have been in that situation more times that I can count and with very little success. Time is of the essence but sometimes, there is nothing more that can be done.
