The Keizer Fire District honored two Target employees with the Bob Wickman Award for heroism in saving the life of another.

At its July 19 board meeting, the Keizer Fire District honored two Target employees with the Bob Wickman Award for heroism in saving the life of another.

In March, store manager Brad Dickerson and senior team leader Austin Snelling performed CPR on customer Sharon W., who collapsed after going into cardiac arrest near the store’s main entrance.

Snelling gave chest compressions as Dickerson prepared the automated external defibrillator. Their actions ultimately helped Sharon regain consciousness and a normal heartbeat.

Salem Health produced a video that includes surveillance camera footage of the rescue:
