When teens Logan Connell and Jimmy Brand EMT arrived at work Wednesday afternoon, they were expecting a slow, easy day of helping kids play on the various attractions at Gull Meadow Farms’ Pumpkin Lane
They could never have imagined they would end up saving the life of one of the farm’s patrons.
However, when 70-year-old Ralph Freds collapsed from a heart attack at 5 p.m., the two 17-year-olds sprang into action.
“We were working over by the zip cord when we heard people yelling and screaming,” Connell said. “When Jimmy heard that someone was injured, he looked at me and said ‘Logan, let’s go.’”
