Nahant Fire Chief Provides Lifesaving First Aid While Vacationing in New Hampshire
NAHANT — The Nahant Fire Department is pleased to announce that Chief Michael Feinberg helped revive a man while vacationing at Bretton Woods earlier this week.
On Monday, April 9, at approximately 3 p.m., Chief Feinberg was on a skiing trip with his wife and two children at New Hampshire’s Bretton Woods when a skier ahead of him in line for the lift collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest.
Chief Feinberg quickly reacted and put his professional training to use by administering CPR and using a defibrillator to revive the 43-year-old victim, who was alert and responsive as a result of the chief’s efforts.
“It just goes to show that those of us who are who are firefighters or police officers are never truly off duty,” Chief Feinberg said. “I’m glad I was able to help in that moment, and I hope that he will make a full recovery.”
The man was subsequently airlifted to a Boston area hospital and is continuing to recover.
