The nurse resuscitated the energy worker

Read Time:3 Minute, 34 Second

A Florida nurse will be honored at a city commission meeting for resuscitating a utility worker who suffered a shock while power was being restored in the days after Hurricane Ian. Casey Shaw will receive a Life Saving Award for CPR on the worker. Shaw said she was glad she was in the right place at the right time. “I just did what I knew how to do,” Shaw said. Watch the full story in the video player above. The registered nurse was at home in Venice Bay the Sunday after the hurricane when a neighbor came running to her door. Two utility workers, one of them Zach Halpin, 24, of New Smyrna Beach Utilities, were working to restore power on Airport Road when they were electrocuted. Halpin was badly burned and his heart stopped beating. I couldn’t feel a pulse, and then I started cardiopulmonary resuscitation,” Shaw said. Shaw noticed an automated external defibrillator nearby. They are carried by energy crews. After Halpin’s analysis, she realized he needed an AED. “We did the shock and I continued CPR, disconnecting with the other lineman, until paramedics arrived,” Shaw said. Victoria Coombs also lives nearby. “I went outside and I just saw smoke and flames,” Coombs said. Coombs watched as Shaw rushed to the scene, rescuing the young worker, who was badly injured and now back home recovering. Now, Coombs also wants to become a nurse. “It really inspired me to come out, and really, because the next time it happens, I want to be the one who knows what to do,” Coombs said. By all accounts, Shaw is a hero and deserves to be recognized by the city. “It’s special and I’m very grateful and very humbled by it,” Shaw said. However, Shaw said the real reward is just knowing Halpin is alive.” The feeling is amazing. In fact, he sent me a Facebook friend request the other day and I almost cried. I was just thrilled that he was OK,” Shaw said. Another power line worker was injured in the incident, but not seriously.

The registered nurse was at home in Venice Bay the Sunday after the hurricane when a neighbor came running to her door.

Two utility workers, one of them Zach Halpin, 24, of New Smyrna Beach Utilities, were working to restore power on Airport Road when they were electrocuted.

Halpin was badly burned and his heart stopped beating.

“It was very scary, but my instincts kicked in and I checked his pulse. I couldn’t feel a pulse, and then I started cardiopulmonary resuscitation,” Shaw said.

Shaw noticed an automated external defibrillator nearby. They are carried by energy crews.

After Halpin’s analysis, she realized that he needed an automatic defectology defect.

“We applied the shock and I continued CPR, disconnecting with the other lineman until paramedics arrived,” Shaw said.

Victoria Coombs also lives nearby.

“I went outside and all I saw was smoke and flames,” Coombs said.

Coombs watched as Shaw rushed to the scene, rescuing the young worker, who was badly injured and now back home recovering. Now, Coombs also wants to become a nurse.

“It really inspired me to come out, and really, because the next time it happens, I want to be the one who knows what to do,” Coombs said.

By any standards, Shaw is a hero and deserves recognition from the city.

“It’s special and I’m very grateful and very humbled,” Shaw said.

Shaw said the real reward is just knowing Halpin is alive

“It feels amazing. In fact, he sent me a Facebook friend request the other day and I almost cried. I was just thrilled that he was OK,” Shaw said.

As a result of the incident, another power line worker was injured, but not so seriously.
