CPR saves life, parties talk about ordeal
GAINESVILLE - The good samaritan and the man whose life she saved at a store in Cumming last month are talking about the ordeal.
CBS Atlanta spoke with Kasey Chester and George Gaetan. Gaetan, a clerk at a Dollar General Store suffered a massive heart attack.
Chester, a customer, jumped in and performed CPR. The whole effort was captured on the store's surveillance camera.
"You know God put me in the right place at the right time, because it's one of those things where you just hope that you can help someone in need. I mean, that's why we're here anyway," Chester said.
Gaetan is on medication and had a portable defibrillator, but is expected to make a full recovery. He told CBS Atlanta he's thankful.
"How fortunate I am to have been in a circumstance where Kasey took the initiative and saved my life."
Doctors have said those few minutes of CPR were likely the difference between life and death for Gaetan.
