Three Port Canaveral employees are being recognized for their quick actions in potentially helping save a cruise passenger's life after the passenger collapsed in the parking garage of Cruise Terminal 1. According to the port, the passenger was stricken about 7 a.m. Sunday when he was getting off Royal Caribbean International's Harmony of the Seas after a cruise.
"Each one took on a different role to help save his life — Sean Summers called 911, Josh Clayton ran to get a portable defibrillator, and Stephanie Dobson stayed with the man and monitored his condition until the ambulance arrived."Initially, the patient had no pulse. When Clayton ran back to the scene with the defibrillator, it was attached to the patient, "shocked him once, and there was a return of a pulse," Dobson said.
She said the man was alert and talking when he was being put into an ambulance for transport to the hospital.
