VERNON, B.C. - Four workers at a recreation centre in Vernon, B.C., have been honoured for coming to the aid of a Manitoba woman who collapsed from cardiac arrest while using a treadmill in January.
Thirty-six-year-old Shelly Greenlaw, who was visiting from Killarney, Man., says the quick actions of the staff of the Vernon Rec Centre saved her life.
She says there aren't enough words to thank them for what they did.
Head lifeguard Gary Lefebvre (le-fave) was among the employees presented with a community award from the BC Ambulance Service.
He says he'd had lifesaving training for 18 years, and to use the skill for the first time and have it succeed was an overwhelming feeling.
The other staff members honoured were Norlene Keller, Lauren Hitchen and Rae Kievet (keevit). (CKIZ)
