Life-saving efforts

Tarrant and Perham arrived at the site after receiving a call over the radio where Budden was already delivering CPR.

According to Tarrant, it is 100% team effort. Everybody has an individual role or all share the same roles. One individual cannot do it alone. The 3 emergency responders continued to perform CPR. An AED was utilized and an IV line was started.

After giving a second shock from the AED, they were able to restore a pulse and the man was transported to a healthcare facility via an ambulance.
