Isanti BMX racer saved by Allina Health nurse after frightening crash

[Fox 9 News, April 08, 2023] On most race days at Rum River BMX in Isanti, large crashes and falls occur, but when Brian Oberg went down, it wasn’t long until everyone realized this wasn't an ordinary crash.

On April 2, Oberg crashed, rolled off his bike and passed out. Immediately, several people nearby sprung into action to try and save him.

"I kept working on him, telling him not today, Brian, we’re coming back," off-duty Allina Health Mercy Hospital-Unity Campus nurse Jennifer Swanson said. "I just wasn’t stopping until I got him back… it’s what I’m trained to do. I’m not a hero or anything like that, I did what I was supposed to do in the moment."
