Oct. 19, 2017, was a scary day for O'Brien Kia of Bloomington, Ill.
Jordan Turner, a porter at the dealership, was getting a car ready for delivery when he went into cardiac arrest and collapsed.
Employees, one a volunteer firefighter and the other a former Mayo Clinic worker, began performing CPR on the 20-year-old after not being able to find a pulse. Paramedics from the Bloomington Fire Department arrived soon after. Still no pulse.
The paramedics continued to perform CPR along with using an automated external defibrillator. Turner still had no pulse when he was taken away in the ambulance. On the way to the hospital, Turner's pulse came back and doctors continued to work on him when he arrived.
Fortunately, Turner made it through and was admitted to the intensive care unit. Physicians embedded an internal defibrillator in Turner afterward.
The near-tragedy made an impact on Ryan Gremore, president of the O'Brien Auto Team. Gremore decided that if another medical emergency ever took place at one of his stores, staffers would have the tools and training to address it.
The incident taught him that "anything can happen."
