Ceremony to honor lifesaving individuals, treatment

GREENVILLE — A ceremony is scheduled in Greenville Thursday to honor a group of lifesaving individuals and an innovative new medical treatment.

Mayor Steve Reid intends to deliver a special proclamation in recognition of the emergency medical personnel, firefighters, hospital staff and bystanders who joined over the summer in saving the life of David Lindler.

The ceremony is set for 2 p.m. Thursday at the Hunt Regional Medical Center.

Lindler was bowling with friends on July 27 when he collapsed and went into cardiac arrest. The friends called 911 and began cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until personnel from American Medical Response (AMR) and the Greenville Fire Rescue Department.

Lindler was transported to the Hunt Regional Medical Center where he became the first patient in Hunt County to receive a new life-saving technique called therapeutic hypothermia, a treatment that lowers a patient’s body temperature in order to help reduce the risk of injury to tissue due to a reduced blood flow.

Lindler was admitted to the intensive care unit and later was transported to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas.
