The last thing Jarmo Stromberg remembers is skating down the ice.
The 61-year-old realtor was playing an early morning game of hockey at London’s Western Fair Sports Complex when he collapsed.
His quick-thinking teammates and opponents — including firefighters and a retired police officer — sprang into action.
“Almost immediately, an action plan was put into place,” said Chet Couture, a London firefighter who plays with Stromberg.
Someone performed chest compressions on Stromberg, who wasn’t breathing and had no pulse, until a nearby defibrillator was retrieved.
A single shock from the machine got Stromberg’s heart beating again. Within minutes, he was conscious and talking.
