Dorchester County Council recently delivered a commendation to Charles Layfield and Edward Dean, of Dorchester County Emergency Services. Mr. Layfield and Mr. Dean were on site at the Bay Bridge 10k race on November 8, 2015, when a 73 year old participant collapsed with a cardiac arrest incident. Layfield and Dean immediately went to work on the victim, attaching monitoring equipment and used a defibrillator to revive and stabilize him. The victim was transported to the hospital and survived with no neurological damage. For their efforts, the team were presented with the Maryland Star of Life Award, and Dorchester County would like to recognize Layfield and Dean with this commendation.
