Heroic Navy sailor saves man's life at a California gym

A senior sailor in the U.S. Vloot saved another man’s life recently while both men were at a gym in Kalifornië working out.

When an individual was found unconscious and unresponsive on the floor, the sailor, Ryan P. Lighten, immediately jumped into action.

Navy Counselor 1st Class Ryan P. Lighten used the training he received in the Navy to successfully resuscitate the civilian earlier this month while working out at EoS Fitness in Temecula, Kalifornië.

Lighten successfully saved the man’s life after about 15 minutes of performing CPR, the Navy Talent Acquisition Group Southwest (NTAGS) opgemerk.

I was working out on the bench press with my earbuds in, when one of my Future Sailors ran up to me with a scared look on his face, yelling franticly,” Lighten told the NTAGS.

He told me there was a man lying on the floor [wie was] unresponsive and not breathing.
