Basketball Player Saves Referee’s Life During a Game
A basketball game in Upstate New York is in full swing when suddenly the referee wobbles and collapses from a heart attack. That’s when Toledo Glass City basketball player Myles Copeland jumps into action. As luck would have it, Copeland is not just a basketball player — he’s a firefighter at the Toledo, Ohio, fire department. He starts to perform CPR on 61-year-old John Sculli. For 30 minutes, Copeland worked to get Suclli’s heart going again, ultimately saving his life.
