Codey Thomas, Indiana ’18, Saves a Life

Feb. 20, 2017 - During the night of the Indiana Chapter’s Associate Member Ceremony, a member noticed a collapsed, unresponsive woman across from the chapter house. The member realized she was in need of immediate medical assistance. A bystander called for an ambulance, while he went to get help from the chapter members. While the paramedics were on the way, VP of Loss Prevention Codey Thomas, Indiana ’18, took control of the situation, as he was a trained EMT. He quickly discovered the woman had no pulse and was not breathing. He preformed CPR on the woman for a few minutes until she began to breath again. The Paramedics soon arrived and took the woman to the hospital. 

A few weeks later, Codey received a letter from the hospital notifying him that the woman was a live and recovering well. She is faculty member of the campus and has since returned to teach after a few weeks of recovery.
