News Release from Marion Co. Sheriff's Office
FlashAlert: April 22nd, 2017 9:50 AM
around 12:50 p.m., Senior Deputy Mike Beach was preparing to eat his lunch at a
local restaurant at the Keizer Station when a man approached him. The man
explained to Senior Deputy Beach that at the business next door he had found an
employee on the ground and she appeared to need help.
Senior Deputy Beach
quickly went next door to the store, Game Stop and saw a 30 year old female, on
the ground and unconscious. Senior Deputy Beach radioed for medical help and
began assessing the female. After discovering she was not breathing and did not
have a pulse Senior Deputy Beach handed the keys to his nearby patrol car to the
man and asked him to retrieve his medical kit.
Senior Deputy Beach began
chest compressions as another patron entered the store. The patron, Dee Ann
White of Falls City asked Deputy Beach if she could help. Deputy Beach and Ms.
White worked together, alternating chest compressions until the male returned
with the medical bag.
Deputy Beach retrieved his CPR mask from the bag, took
over chest compressions and Ms. White began providing rescue breaths. Medical
personnel arrived a short time later and transported the female to the Salem
Hospital where she remains in critical condition.
The Marion County
Sheriff's Office would like to commend Senior Deputy Beach, Ms. White and the
unknown man who worked together to help another person in need.
