Cudahy — Three sergeants from the Wisconsin Air National Guard will be honored Tuesday for potentially saving the life of a woman who had collapsed and suffered a heart attack outside her home.
The three airmen were driving by Linda Provolo's residence in the 3600 block of E. Pulaski Ave. about 10:30 a.m. July 22. Finding her with no pulse and not breathing, they began performing CPR on the 64-year-old woman, according to a resolution citing an act of heroism that will be presented to the Common Council.
After the Fire Department responded with a defibrillator, Provolo began breathing on her own and recovered, Fire Chief Dan Mayer said Monday. Provolo might not have survived had CPR not been started so quickly, he said.
The airmen being honored are Technical Sgt. Nicole Crivello and master Sgts. Angela Petri and Patricia Gross, according to the resolution. They are based at the 128th Air Refueling Wing at Mitchell International Airport.
