John, a Protection and Control Technician, is being praised for his swift actions after helping to save a man's life just east of Trenton.

The man and his wife were out for a bike ride when he started to experience exhaustion. As his wife went to go get the car, a passing driver noticed the man in distress, called 911 and started CPR chest compressions.

It was at that time that John came upon the
situation. He was driving his Hydro One truck when he noticed the man collapsed on the side of the road. He immediately pulled over, grabbed the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) unit from his truck and rushed to the scene.

John instructed everyone to stay clear and activated the unit to deliver the shock. Immediately, the man’s breathing restarted. When emergency services arrived, they took over the patient’s care.

The man was taken to the local hospital where doctors discovered he had suffered a heart attack. After undergoing surgery, he is now on the mend.

In November, the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) announced several Hydro One employees as winners of the Lifesaving Awards for their outstanding response to emergency situations. John was among the group of 18 winners for his actions that day.
