Miracle in the end zone
At a Central Catholic high school football game in Canby, Oregon, Hayward Demison ran for the end zone. He was carrying the football and he was focused on scoring the winning touchdown for his team. He thought he was having an asthma attack, as his heart was racing faster than his legs. Once he hit the end zone, he hit the ground. Hayward was having a heart attack right there in front of everyone.
Demison was out of it for two minutes. A spectator in the stands, cardiac nurse Lisa Lyver , rushed onto the field and began doing chest compressions. After 60 compressions, Demison’s pulse was back. Demison didn’t suffer permanent damage from the heart attack and he will have surgery in two weeks. His football career this year will be put on hold, but he should be back in the game next year.
In this day and age when people are afraid to go to the aid of someone in distress, thank goodness for nurse Lyver. She truly saved his life. Job well done! I hope if I was in that situation someone would step up to the plate for me.
Speaking of the Baltimore Ravens
I have a few teams that are my favs – the Ravens (I was born in Baltimore); the Titans (I live in Tennessee) and the Colts (I forgave them years later for leaving Baltimore because they hired Manning). I lived in Central Jersey a good portion of my life, but was never a fan of NY or NJ Teams. When the Ravens came out with a 10-9 victory Monday night, they did it without fanfare, without name calling. I wouldn’t rub it into the faces of the Jets. This is ‘just’ football, not life or death. However, when the Baltimore Ravens win the super bowl this year we will talk more then.
