Bike paramedics save the day at the Taste
A helpful bicyclist and some paramedics on bikes saved the day when a woman on her way to the Taste went into cardiac arrest.
According to the Sun-Times, a 52-year-old woman who went into cardiac arrest on her way to the Taste of Chicago on Thursday was resuscitated, thanks to a quick-thinking passerby and a pair of paramedics on bicycles.
The unidentified woman, an Arizona tourist, was walking to the Taste when she collapsed near Balbo and Columbus around 10:30 a.m., Chicago Fire Department officials said. A good samaritan on her bicycle spotted the woman and began administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
