Mayor Mike Millman and Woodinville City Council recognized two city employees for a commendable act of bravery and selflessness on Tuesday, May 3.
About a week prior, public works maintenance crew members Chris Gohl and Marty McGregor were driving along Northeast 190th Street when they noticed a man had collapsed near Waste Management's Cascade Recycling Center.
Without hesitation, they immediately stopped their truck, dialed 911, and began CPR on the man until paramedics arrives. They conducted CPR for about three minutes, until paramedics arrived on the scene and were able to take over and work to stabilize the man.
As the situation settled, paramedics complimented the two on their courage to act quickly, stating that their efforts likely saved the man's life.
Millman presented Gohl and McGregor with Woodinville's first ever Life Saving Award during the city council meeting on Tuesday.
"I think I speak for the rest of the City Council when I say that this is precisely the type of bravery and heroism that defines the spirit of Woodinville," Millman said.
