Rep. Phil Roe

Filed under: In The News — Ken @ 11:24 pm

Over at Drudgereport they have a link to a story about Tennessee Rep. Phil Roe performing CPR on a man at the airport. Rep. Roe was talking with Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport when he heard someone shouting for a doctor.

Rep. Roe responded and found a man unconscious without a pulse. After performing CPR on the man, alternating with a woman who also knew CPR, they were soon relieved by the paramedics who revived the man using an external defibrillator. It has been reported the man is doing well, and is expected to have a full recovery.

Before running for Congress, Rep. Roe was an obstetrician for 31 years, but before entering medical school, Rep. Roe was a Boy Scout, where he earned the rank of Eagle Scout. Recently, Rep. Roe was awarded the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award.
