Customer, firefighters use CPR to rescue Livonia man, 57, at car wash
Feb 18, 2021

Livonia police discovered another hero when they were dispatched to a Plymouth Road car wash earlier this month.

According to a police report, officers were dispatched to the 33905 Plymouth Road car wash the afternoon of Jan. 9 because of a medical emergency in progress.

They found a woman saying that her husband, 57, was washing their Ford F-150 at the self-service location when he suddenly fell to the ground.

She initially thought he slipped but realized the emergency when he failed to get up.

The wife called 911 while another person, also from Livonia, began CPR on her husband at about 3:04 p.m. Livonia firefighters arrived and officially took over care about five minutes later.

The man who fell was breathing and had a good pulse while being transported to St. Mary Mercy Livonia Hospital.

Firefighters later informed dispatch that the man was alert and talking upon arrival at the hospital.

No other information was available.
