Marathon 2012: Making a Difference!
We have been saying for some
time now that, with the number of events that the Backcountry
Trail Patrol assists with, the time was coming when patrol
members would be part of an effort to save a life. That happened
at the Twin Cities Marathon on Sunday, October 7th. Backcountry
Patrol members Michael and Deb Randall were patrolling the TCM
10 Mile course and came upon citizens performing CPR on a downed
runner. They applied the patrol's AED and successfully revived
the man, who was turned over to paramedics, transported to the
hospital and is reported to be doing well.
and Deb, you done good!
