Sheriff Reimburses Medic for Towing Bill


 
 

| Tuesday, April 15, 2008


JACKSON, Mich. -- A Navy medic is being reimbursed for a $60 towing bill he received while he was helping perform CPR on a heart attack victim.

Jackson County (Mich.) Undersheriff Tom Finco said the department was paying back Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Tim Moore as "a goodwill gesture"

"(Moore) said it wasn't necessary, he understood, but we sent him a check anyway," Finco said.

Moore, 24, who had just returned from Iraq, was driving on Interstate 94 on April 2 when he saw an ambulance parked on the side. He pulled over and comforted a woman whose fianc De had suffered a heart attack inside the ambulance.

When the rescuers learned of Moore's medical training, they asked if he would help administer CPR. He left his truck on the exit ramp and got in. The man died at Foote Hospital in Jackson.
