Emergency First Response would like to congratulate Rob Mackean (PADI IDC Staff Instructor # 289793) for providing much needed assistance when called upon.
Rob was in the water when he saw another diver come to the surface face down. Rob immediately swam to the diver, saw that he was not breathing, and provided rescue breaths while signalling for help and towing the diver to the shore. The diver was revived and began breathing of his own accord. He was kept in hospital overnight and then released, returning to work a few days later!
Thank you, Rob – this diver was fortunate that you spotted the emergency and responded in such an effective manner; well done!
