Default man collapses on golfcart path at 466A & Canal 0n 3/22 @ aprox. 12:30pm

At approximately 12:30 pm on 3/22 my husband and I came upon a gentleman that was collapsed and unconscious on the bench next to the golf cart path at 466A & Canal street. A few people were already stopped and calling 911 as we pulled up. We lowered the gentleman to the ground and my husband began to administer CPR before the paramedics arrived. We do not know who the man was or if he survived what appeared to be a heart attack. If anyone knows who this gentleman is or his condition please let us know. We are keeping him and his family in our thoughts and prayers!!

I hope we're able to find out his condition. We stopped by the fire department but all they could tell us was that he had a pulse when they arrived at the hospital.

I agree. I feel so bad for him, he was all alone in his hour of need and yet our wonderful community stopped to help him. I pray he is okay.

Ironically we were recently at a Sanibel meeting to discuss the installation of AED machines throughout the neighborhood as well as CPR training. Today's events are certainly a testament to the importance of everyone learning CPR. We were just driving by on our way to the golf course. You never know when or where you'll need life saving skills!

Someone asked me if the man was driving a golf cart. He was not. It appears he was walking along the path and sat down on the bench. Maybe this bit of information can help to find out who he is and if he survived.

I do not know the gentleman but THANK YOU for stopping and helping.
We have the AED's in our neighborhood and it is a very good program.

We were there yesterday too. When we went to Colony he wasn't around at that time. On our way back about 30 minutes later was when we saw him and the people doing CPR. We have also wondered what happened to him?
He was wearing a wedding band and I was very concerned if his spouse was at home waiting for him. Thank God we live in a place where people stop and help each other.

This incident is a reminder to have ID with us when we go out walking or exercising. It would be horrible to have something happen and not have our loved ones with us.
