Unity nurse part of impromptu medical team that saves man

[Star News, February 24, 2012] It’s hard to imagine, but an Otsego man who went into cardiac arrest while driving this past week was actually pretty lucky. Almond Drone, 52, attracted the attention of what turned out to be an impromptu medical team.

“This has to be a God thing,” said Cheryl Jarvis, a resident of Nowthen and an ICU nurse for Unity Hospital in Fridley. “Why would three nurses (in three separate vehicles) all be at the same intersection at the same time? He had to put us there to make a difference.”

Drone is alive but remains in serious condition at Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids where he was brought this past Monday by Elk River Ambulance. Read the full story online at The Star News.
