Cardiologist Resuscitates Two Runners in the Same Race

An incredible save story recently happened at the November 13th Monterey Bay Half Marathon. While running, cardiologist Steven Lome, D.O., stopped to assist a runner in cardiac arrest around the third mile marker. While he started CPR, someone else called 911 and an AED arrived a few minutes later. One shock restored normal heart rhythm, and Dr. Lome helped the runner to an ambulance.

Dr. Lome continued the race, hoping to catch up with his two teenage kids, also running. When he reached the finish line, another runner collapsed. Dr. Lome jumped into action and started CPR. An AED arrived in less than two minutes. Read the rest of the story from Runner’s World for the runner’s surprising reaction >>
