Fairfax County Fire and Rescue personnel from Reston's Station 25 stopped by Resonate, a tech marketing firm at Plaza America, on Thursday to award two citizen lifesaving awards to Resonate employees.
Cynthia Shang and Neil Yalowitz performed CPR on company Chief Operating Officer Andy Hunn on Aug. 14, when Hunn went into cardiac arrest at work.
FCPD Capt. Jeffery Tolle said the quick thinking of Shang and Yalowitz helped save Hunn's life.
"We see many tragedies and many wonderful things like this," said Tolle. "The odds of survival drops 10 percent for every minute CPR is not done. This man was given the best chance of a full recovery."
Hunn, 41, was then treated by paramedics and at a hospital. He has made a full recovery.
"I am forever grateful to both of them," Hunn says of his co-workers and the FCPD.
