Healthcare workers save a man’s life

POMONA, NJ — Two healthcare workers from the AtlantiCare Heart and Vascular Institute were out for dinner on Good Friday in Brigantine, New Jersey, when a man at the table next to them had a medical emergency.

Frank DeAngelis, an 83-year-old man was that patron.

While waiting for his desert, his heart stopped.

Both women immediately sprang into action and started CPR, which immediately saved Frank’s life.

He eventually recovered in the same hospital where they work and called them his “guardian angels” when he was discharged less than a week later.

He and the workers are now insisting on the need for more people to get certified in CPR.
