A cardiac arrest survivor will be throwing out the first pitch and the crew that saved him will be honored on the field before the game. Ken Farkas was running the Air Force Marathon when he collapsed and went into Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The EMT’s and Paramedics from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Fire Department as well as Beavercreek Township Fire Department were the first crews on scene and started advanced lifesaving efforts. After multiple cardiac defibrillations, Ken regained his pulse and was transported by Beavercreek Township paramedics to Soin Medical Center. Today, Ken has no lasting effects from this event and had made a full recovery thanks to the dedication of these extraordinary EMS professionals.
