Outside jogging on the morning of Saturday, June 29, Snoqualmie citizen Lars Gunnarsson heard calls for help and realized a neighbor was in distress.
Without hesitating, Gunnarson went to the woman’s aid, to find her husband unconscious and unresponsive.
Gunnarsson immediately removed the man from the bed and began CPR until the Snoqualmie Fire Department arrived. Fire crews and paramedics started caring for him, transporting him to the hospital.
By time they reached the hospital, the man had regained his pulse and blood pressure. By his timely, proficient actions, Gunnarsson saved a life.
He was given the Mayor’s Lifesaving Award at the council’s July 22 meeting.
