According to Rural Metro Fire, he’s alive thanks to the quick action of bystanders. They say the man fell out of a raft and wasn’t wearing a life jacket, near Galice. He disappeared under the water for a couple of minutes but resurfaced, unconscious and was pulled to safety.
A good samaritan started CPR and eventually, the man regained consciousness. He was transported to the hospital for evaluation. Rural Metro is using this incident as a reminder to always wear a life jacket.
