Many of us wonder how we would react in an emergency situation.
Just over a week ago, bystanders and first responders worked as a team after one Rochester man suffered a heart attack in the middle of the road. The following report shows CPR being performed on a patient which some viewers may want to avoid.
Just last week on a day much sunnier than this, seven strangers' lives collided.
A truck driver in cardiac arrest, veered off Lyell Avenue in Rochester and crashed into a pole.
"He was kinda hanging out the window, you could tell he was unconscious," said Frank Ignizio of Rochester. "His head was purplish-blue."
Bystanders stood in horror, watching Frank Ignizio and his brother pull him out of the truck.
Four firefighters from Engine 5 grabbed their EMS kits and ran over across the street less than a minute after the crash.
The two-minute clip recorded by a witness, seemed to go on for hours.
Captain Jeorger says the man was dead. He had no pulse. But admidst the traffic and screaming crowd, the firefighters stayed focused.
"We ended up shocking him a few more times after that, that video was really a 1/3 of what it was," said Christopher Courtney, Engine 5 firefighter.
Like many times before, the ambulance came and they hoped what they did was enough.
Knowing, they may never know.
Until Artie Frisbee walked into the fire house days later looking better than ever thanking the men who literally breathed life back into him.
"It's kind of like I'm looking at a movie, like it's not really me," said Frisbee
Due to budget cuts, this department has been on the chopping block for years now, hoping to stay open permanently. The next station is Engine 17, not so far on a map, but could mean five extra minutes for someone who isn't breathing.
"They're geographically located so the response time is minimal," said Scott Jorger, Engine 5 Captain.
Captain Joerger says once the ambulance came Artie finally sat up just long enough to say, "Ow."
"I mean how often do you get to shake hands with somebody who saves your life, these guys were there for me when I needed them," said Frisbee
But for Engine 5, it's just another day at the station.
