My neighbor died, I wasn't able to save him
This weekend my neighbor died. His little old wife came running in to our home asking for help. I ran over there, found him with out vital signs, hunched over his dining room table. They were just having dinner. His wife couldn't pick him up and place him on the floor and start CPR like the 911 report had told her. I some how managed to pick him up and place him on the floor and started compressions immediately. His face was already blue. I didn't stop CPR until after the paramedics arrived. I couldn't revive him. It is killing me.

Yes he had four prior heart attacks and a shot load of medical issues. I had just redone my CPR and first aid course and it didn't help. I just feel awful that I got there too late.

When does this crappy feeling go away?

She was so happy that I was there and that I acted and tried to help. The wife reminds me of my grandmother. They were going to celebrate their 60th anniversary next month.

Re: My neighbor died, I wasn't able to save him
You seem to have done what you could and in no way is this your fault. You didn't fail to save him, he simple couldn't be saved.

It's sad when people die and it will be around for a while, but unless he was a close personal friend of yours, you'll bounce back pretty fast. Don't feel bad about it either. You tried and that counts a lot.

Be well.

You did what you could. It was his time. I'm sure he appreciated the effort and will appreciate your being there for his widow.

The world could use more caring neighbors like you.

:awwtree:

The crappy feeling will go away when you realize his life wasn't really in your hands...but yours is...and you did a beautiful thing...most likely your presence that day was vital for his widow.

I imagine she's probably grateful for not having been alone for the whole event until the paramedics arrived.

Aww poor old darling. 60 yrs is an amazing length of time to be married. They were soul mates for sure. Just check in on her now and again to make sure she is alright, plus it will help you mend also.

Was an EMT for years, and unfortunately not everyone is able to be saved. You did your best, in a time of distress. Thank you for giving all you had. Be there for the widow now, she will need all the love and support you can give, and it will help you in the long run!

I~m glad you will be, it will mean alot to her also that you are there. I~ve been with my hubby 20 yrs, couldn`t imagine my life without him. I wouldn`t know where to start.

She does have family that are close but live far from her. I told her son I would be here for her. He thanked me for being their with her during everything.

As for me, my husband has been comforting and supportive.
