Man Saves Woman’s Life After She Collapses In Texas Grocery Store: ‘I Just Jumped In To Help’ – Video

A Texas guy is being hailed as a hero after coming to the aid of a lady who fell while buying groceries. Justin Thomas never intended his trip to the League City Kroger to end in a life situation, but that is precisely what the father of four found himself in, according to NBC partner KPRC.

He told the Houston publication, “I really saw someone in need.” “I didn’t give it a second thought; I immediately went in to assist.”

Thomas, a CPR-certified trainer, said he suspected there was something wrong while buying groceries for his twins. He told KPRC, “I heard someone yell out, so I moved towards the source of the noise.” “Then I noticed a lady sprawled on the floor.” The woman seemed to have heart fa-ilure, according to Thomas. The father of four, who has medical training and served in the United States Coast Guard for ten years, understood what to do and acted quickly. He told KPRC “I came down on both knees.” “As I looked at her I noticed that she was turning blue, and I quickly started performing CPR on her.”

He said, “I actually saw where her sternum was.” “I just started hammering her shoulder with my arm with my fingertips back.” He and another guy who came to buy groceries proceeded to give life-saving attempts on the woman until medics arrived at the scene and brought her to a clinic, according to the source.

“After that, it was unusual, a strange sensation,” Thomas told KPRC. “It’s like I’ve got all this adrenaline and I still have to go to buy milk.” Later, Thomas claimed he was called by the woman’s relatives who informed him that she had recovered – all owing to his prompt reaction. “The doctors have told her that she wouldn’t have survived it if it hadn’t been for the prompt steps,” he told KPRC.

Despite his gratitude for saving a life, Thomas told the media that he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, saying that he is obliged to know CPR at work and that he rejuvenates his education and training every year.

He also advised people to follow his lead and educate how to provide life-saving measures, saying that you never knew when you’ll need them.
