Tor Inge’s story
Tor Inge was enjoying holidays with his extended family at their cabin in the fjords of Norway when his father suddenly experienced a cardiac arrest. Far from the nearest hospital, Tor Inge knew that time was critical.
As part of his job at Laerdal, Tor Inge practices CPR regularly. While his wife coordinated with the dispatcher, Tor Inge delivered compressions and ventilations. There was a defibrillator at a nearby school that they got hold of and were able to give him a shock before the ambulance arrived and could take over.
Today, almost a year later, Tor Inge’s father lives at home and appreciates time with family and friends, still recovering from the dramatic event.
