MLB Umpire Saves Woman’s Life
Jim Joyce is an MLB umpire who is now being considered a hero, he is being credited with saving the life of a food service worker who collapsed of an apparent heart attack at Chase Field, Monday night.
Joyce started doing CPR and then Marlins bullpen catcher Jeff Urgelles, a former firefighter and paramedic, was called to the scene and began helping Joyce.
Paramedics arrived moments later and transported the woman to a hospital, where her conditioned improved.
“I knew something was wrong,” Joyce said. “And I knew if something wasn’t done, this lady could actually die in front of me. It was more instinct than anything else.”
