With the Corner Brook Royals in Gander this weekend for some hockey action, it was another kind of save that stole the show for the Gander Flyers netminder.

The drama started when a fan in the stands collapsed from an apparent heart attack.  Mayor Claude Elliott was first on the scene before the Gander Flyers goaltender Patty O’Brien and the Flyers training staff arrived on the scene.  O’Brien, who works as a paramedic with the Central Health Authority performed CPR and resuscitated the man who was then transported to the James Paton Memorial Regional Hospital where is reported to be in stable condition.  O’Brien was in his full goalie gear when he leaped into action.

O’Brien thanked those who helped out, acknowledging the contributions of Tom Whalen and Claude Elliott during this heroic incident.
