Planet Fitness Member Saved by AED

Four days ago, on March 28, a Planet Fitness member who had collapsed from Sudden Cardiac Arrest was saved by an Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Kudos to Planet Fitness for having an AED and to the responders like Ian Palmer who sprang into action to use the AED to save the man's life.
