Home Newsroom VIDEO: 911 Dispatcher Coaches BHS Student Through Life-Saving CPR

BHS-TV’s Blake Davis has produced a powerful new video about student Brendan Gould who saved his father’s life when he went into cardiac arrest earlier this year.

Back on February 6th, Tom Gould collapsed at his home in Barrington. His son Brendan and daughter Grace immediately called 911 and Brendan stayed on on the line as the 911 dispatcher talked him through performing CPR with emergency responders en route.

Listen in as both Brendan and the 911-dispacher remain incredibly calm during this medical emergency…

First responders arrived within a few minutes and took over CPR. Through CPR and defibrillation, Tom’s heart began showing signs of activity again, and he was immediately transported to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington where he was released after an 11-day stay.

Thanks to the swift response of both Brendan and Grace, Tom is able to share his story today.

“I beat the odds–very few patients survive from a sudden cardiac arrest,” says Tom. “I attribute my good fortune to the protection of God, the extraordinary team of first responders from the Barrington Police and Fire Departments and the superb and skilled techs, nurses and doctors at Good Shepherd Hospital who worked tirelessly to help me become a miracle man of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.”

Video produced by Blake Davis, a Barrington High School sophomore studying under teacher Jeff Doles in the school’s award-winning BHS-TV department. Learn more about BHS-TV’s latest projects at Facebook.com/BarringotnHighSchoolTV.
