MTA conductor performs CPR on passenger
F-Train conductor, Kevin Bartsch was on a southbound train when passengers alerted him to an unconscious man.
“I found this gentleman slumped over on the bench, people were saying he’s dead,” Bartsch, 50, recalled. “I noticed his lips were blue. I checked for a carotid pulse. He did not have one.”
Bartsch performed CPR on the man while an EMT arrived on the scene with an AED.
The man returned to consciousness before the defibrillator was needed.
Passengers on the scene describe Bartsch as a hero.
Bartsch himself, was rather modest.
“When it all was going on, training mode took over,” he said. “I did what I had to do.”
”It hit me after, I just saved somebody and was up all night reflecting on it,” he said.
