"I pulled in, and I said are you OK, he rolled his eyes and took four breathes by then I'm calling 911."

That quick reaction from Wendy Jones probably saved a man's life.

She was on her way to her father's house in delta township when she saw the man laying in a driveway.

Wendy told me she had no idea the CPR training she took eight years ago would kick in.

"Never thought I'd have to use it but thank God I did or else I would have been just standing there and he would've died in front of me and I couldn't have done anything."

It took a group effort to save the man from a massive heart attack.
Wendy kept him alive until police and paramedics got there.

"And from behind somebody else came and she took his pulse and said, still no pulse keep on going, so then she took over."

Wendy and her daughter Bella watched in amazement as fire responders used an AED and then an automatic chest-compression machine to revive him.

"It was just such a well-oiled team, that if one person wouldn't have been there...he wouldn't have made it."

She's hoping this story will encourage more people to learn CPR and not be afraid to use it.

"You could be that missing link. and everybody needs help now and then, and this guy is alive...he still gets to be the husband."
