Hockey parents make the save after Burnaby dad collapses (St. Paul's Hospital)
The teenage players on the Burnaby Winter Club midget hockey team may have won last Thursday’s game against Cloverdale, but it was a group of parents who made the save of the day.
Moments after his son’s team scored the winning goal at the North Surrey Recreation Centre, one of the Burnaby fathers collapsed from a heart attack.
Burnaby parent Lucia Milosavljevic is a nurse in the cardiac unit of St. Paul’s Hospital, so she checked for a pulse and couldn’t find one. She began CPR and helped put the defibrillator on the man’s chest.
