The rescuers involved in saving the life of a Coon Rapids man were honored this week.They received certificates of appreciation during Tuesday night's City Council Meeting and also posed for a photo with the 32-year-old man they saved back in December. Michael went into sudden cardiac arrest at home but was shocked and brought back to life. His father calls it a "super miracle.""The nurse that was there at first said he's lucky he had a bunch of people working on him to keep the blood and the air going and I just want to thank you so much everybody for what you do."The fire department also showed off a new tool they just started carrying on all three rescue trucks. The device allows medics to raise the body to a 30 degree angle while performing compressions thus reducing the neurological impacts of CPR on the brain.
