Struck by lightning

2018-08-26 12:07
Isaiah Cormier and his girlfriend, Juliette Moore, were camping in Nederland, Colorado When Cormier was struck by lightning while standing next to their tent. Moore checked for his breathing and pulse, and found none. Thankfully, she was prepared. After administering 2 rounds of CPR, Cormier started breathing. By the time an ambulance arrived, it became clear that Cormier was going to be alright, thanks to the CPR. “I could hear the EMT laughing with him in the back,” Moore said. “I knew that at the very least, he was himself.” Doctors confirmed he was okay, and he was released less than 2 days later. “There is no doubt that I would be dead. I was not breathing,” he said. “It stopped my heart but thankfully Juliette was there.” Both Cormier and Moore agree that having the lifesaving skills— but not needing them is a very good thing. Now they’re hosting a CPR training event for their friends, family, and teams.
