Dad learns CPR and saves Son only 11 days later

In CPR, Rescues by Paul MartinLeave a Comment

In another story that should prove to be a good reason for anyone to learn CPR, a man from Lowell, Michigan recently learned CPR and only eleven days after his class he was forced to use it in a real-life situation – on his son. Logan, 4, was over at a neighbors, and fell out of his tube into the pool. He was underwater for about a minute before being scooped out of the pool by a nearby adult. His father heard a scream and Logan’s name, and that’s all he needed to hear before he sprang into action to save his son.

Rudegeair immediately began CPR. “The whole time in my mind, I’m screaming out to God, please don’t take my son,” he said. The four hours he had spent in the CPR class paid off. Logan was brought back to life in less than two minutes. “Finally, he cried out a terrifying scream, and that was the best sound we’ve ever heard,” Logan’s dad said. “It was very sweet — (a) screaming child. Life.” Rudegeair credits the class with giving him the confidence and skills he needed to save his son’s life that day.
