Palladino employee honoured for life-saving actions
Having worked as a paramedic in Terrace Bay in his younger years, when Palladino Honda inventory manager Paul Marcon saw a customer collapse at the business June 26, his reaction was automatic.
Marcon thought at first she had heat stroke, as it was a warm day, but quickly realized she was breathing irregularly, and her condition was much more serious than he'd originally thought.
“Then when I could not feel a pulse, miraculously the ambulance showed up,” he said.
Marcon said he doesn't know too much about how the woman is doing now, but does know she survived. Given his former occupation, he said helping others comes naturally to him.
