Two Men Recognized for Saving Life

Two Men Honored MEDFORD, Ore. — Two Southern Oregon residents who saw a man collapse and ended up saving his life were awarded certificates.

Medford Fire-Rescue recognized John Bowling and Tyler Sparks. About a month ago, the two men saw Greg Johnson collapse on South Stage Road. The two performed¬†CPR on Johnson and gave him proper medical attention till paramedics arrived. Johnson says he doesn’t remember passing out and just remembers waking up inside the ambulance.

“I’m so glad they were there. There are so many great citizens out there that do things and it just takes courage and knowledge. I’m just so impressed with how people are wiling to pitch in and help,” said Johnson.

Johnson says he has never had heart issues till the day he collapsed.

    Just a slight correction: Greg has had heart issues in the past, 9 years ago to be exact but he had a clean bill of health from his cardiologist as recent as last year.
