Christopher E. Kretz

On the last run of the last day, Chris suddenly fell limp while skiing down a mountain. His family didn’t know what to do. A skier passing by noticed that Chris was not breathing, and immediately began CPR, and called for Ski Patrol. An AED arrived within a few minutes, Chris regained a faint pulse. The team worked together to get Chris off that mountain and to a nearby hospital.
Without that AED, in Chris’ words, he would not be here today. You can watch a short movie on Chris’ story soon on YouTube.
