Sue Ferren joins Danny today to talk about a miraculous story of a little boy who was hit by a baseball and went into cardiac arrest. Sue spent 35 years as a paramedic in Oakland and San Francisco and has been on thousands of calls but this one was the most memorable. Commotio Cordis is a phenomenon that occurs only in young boys when they are struck in the chest at the most inopportune time and causes the heart to stop. Even with prompt CPR and Defib it is 65% fatal and without any intervention it is 80% fatal.
Sue is a cancer survivor and has written a book called “The Fireman Wife” and is the founder and Executive director of a non profit that helps Emergency Personnel with PTSD called https://www.resiliency1st.org/aboutus/
