Nurses receive commendations for aiding Akron Marathon runner

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: February 17, 2013

State Rep. Anthony DeVitis, R-Akron, recently presented commendations to two local nurses credited with saving a runner's life during the Akron Marathon.

Heather Pariso and Lynne Trenkelbach, who were running in the Sept. 29 marathon, came to the aid of Tony Lindeman when he collapsed. Pariso pumped his heart, while Trenkelbach performed mouth-to-mouth until an ambulance arrived. Paramedics used a defibrilator to restart Lindeman's heart.

"Thanks to the quick actions of Lynne and Heather in providing CPR until paramedics arrived, the life of Tony Lindeman was saved," DeVitis said in a news release. "We are grateful to have these selfless individuals in our community."  

Pariso is a part-time nurse at Akron City Hospital. Trenkelbach works at Akron General Hospital.
