Dennis Scott entered Lewis Family Drug on Feb. 16 and collapsed near the customer service counter suffering from Cardiac Arrest.

Elimae Stubbe noticed Scott was very pale. When Scott suddenly collapsed. She immediately began compressions.

“He was very pale, and the look on his face was like someone was going to have a heart attack.”

She leapt.

“My instincts kicked in,” Stubbe said.

She had performed CPR once before on a family member. She since let her certification expire.

“I just did compressions,” Stubbe said. “Lisa from Lewis Drug did compressions and gave mouth-to-mouth.”

Scott said of the incident:

“I woke up with a second life,” he said. In gratitude, “I’d maybe like to contribute, give back, a little more.”
