Passersby help Rochester man who collapsed shoveling snow


ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man who collapsed while shoveling snow on Sunday benefited from the kindness of strangers.

When two people were driving in the 2000 block of 18 1/2 St. NW on Sunday afternoon, they noticed a 72-year-old man who appeared to have collapsed. They both reportedly rushed to his aid and worked together — a woman called 911 and the man performed CPR until officers arrived.

When responders did arrive, they used a defibrillator to bring the man’s pulse back before he was taken to the hospital.
