Georgia Guardsmen Save Woman's Life on Commercial Flight

Georgia Guardsmen Save Woman's Life on Commercial Flight

Written by Master Sgt. Roger Parsons

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga., Sept. 5, 2013—What should have been a routine flight to McCarran International Airport, Las Vegas, Nev., turned into a lifesaving opportunity for three members of the 116th Security Forces Squadron headed to a pre-deployment training exercise at Creech Air Force Base, Nev., Aug 22.

Security forces personnel were traveling on a commercial flight when a passenger passed out and showed no signs of life. As the daughter of the passenger frantically tried to revive her mother, three Airmen from the 116th SFS stepped into action.

U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgts. Tim White and Dominick Andrews, with the 116th Air Control Wing, Georgia Air National Guard, lifted the daughter out of the way and immediately began performing CPR on the mother.
