COMMUNITY HERO SAVES HEART ATTACK VICTIM
Ceremony to Present Good Samaritans with
“Act of Humankindness Award”
When a stranger witnessed a man collapse on the sidewalk, he rushed to the stricken man’s aid and began CPR. As he continued his desperate attempt to save the man’s life, he begged others passing by to help. Finally, a second man stopped, called 9-1-1 and assisted with CPR until paramedics arrived. The patient was brought to Dignity Health - Northridge Hospital’s Emergency Department where he was treated. If it were not for the efforts of these two men, Christopher Henney and E. Javier Cruz, the patient may not have survived. Both men will be awarded with a special “Act of Humankindness Award” at the hospital alongside the surviving patient and fire fighters who were at the scene.
