A year ago - and still think of it.
a year ago, it was monday - not tuesday. i went to maple grove for some reason rather than st. paul. i got in early - about 620. our cubes were up on the third floor and remember passing a colleague in on the steps and at the landing who was having trouble breathing. i asked him if he was ok. he said he just needed to catch his breath. i went on to my cube and and as i rounded the corner, i heard him drop and someone shout call 911. i did and then went around the corner and found him on the floor. i rolled him over. i checked for a pulse and nothing. i then told the lady with him to watch for the medics as i started cpr. i did cpr for over 2 - 3 minutes until the medics arrived. after that i let them take over. i did what i know i had to do. it kept him going until he was transported to the hospital. four days later he passed. i did my best that's all i could do. i only hope that should you come upon the situation, you know what to do. if not, get trained. its not hard.
