BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (PRWEB) September 23, 2020
MEA Energy Association (MEA) is honored to present Jeremy Walters, foreman, of Henkels & McCoy Central Region, with a Life Sustaining Award for saving a man’s life.
While driving back from a job, Walters came across an older gentleman attempting to do CPR on the driver of a stopped vehicle. Walters initiated his strobe lights and turned his truck around to help. He told the older gentleman to call 911 and moved the non-responsive driver from the vehicle and proceeded to perform CPR. Walters managed to get the man breathing before the fire department arrived.
“It is a privilege to bestow this Life Sustaining Award,” said John Gann, MEA Vice President. “These awards serve to highlight the outstanding individuals in the energy industry who rise up when called and make a difference when presented with the opportunity to do so.”
