An 83-year-old man has sheriff's deputies and county
firefighters to thank today for saving his life after he stopped breathing at a
house in an unincorporated area near Agoura.
Deputies and firefighters responded just before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to the
2300 block of Laguna Circle Drive, said Lt. Robert Wiard of the Los Angeles
County sheriff's Malibu/Lost Hills Station.
Deputy Michael Cerveny and Los Angeles County firefighter Dana McLorn
were first on the scene. They entered the house and started CPR, Wiard said.
County fire paramedics Tim Dixon and Keith Carlson arrived and began
advanced life support measures as Cerveny and McLorn continued to administer
CPR, he said, adding that the patient eventually began breathing again and was
taken to a local hospital.
He was listed in critical condition this morning, said a deputy at the
Malibu/Lost Hills Station.
