Heart-Stopping Hockey Game

[KARE11-TV, October 22, 2009] Good hockey players put themselves instinctively in the right place on the ice. Evan Domeyer wouldn't go so far as to call himself a good hockey player. "Not really, no." But he was good enough to save John Dow's life. "I had what they called sudden death," said Dow Wednesday from Mercy Hospital in Fridley. Enter Evan Domeyer, who was lacing up his skates in the locker room of an adjacent rink, when someone ran in looking for help. Domeyer wears a different uniform off the ice: that of a physician at Mercy Hospital. See the story at kare11.com or watch below.

Evan Domeyer wouldn't go so far as to call himself a good hockey player. "Not really, no." But he was good enough to save John Dow's life. Dow, 48, was playing in an adult hockey league two weeks ago at the Schwan Super Rink in Blaine, when at center ice, his heart stopped. "I had what they called sudden death," said Dow Wednesday from Mercy Hospital in Fridley. From that point on Dow only knows what his teammate have told him. "I dropped to my knees. I grabbed my helmet, and I closed my eyes and I fell to the ice." Enter Evan Domeyer, who was lacing up his skates in the locker room of an adjacent rink, when someone ran in looking for help. Domeyer wears a different uniform off the ice: that of a physician at Mercy Hospital.
