UH resident Joshua Marshall meets rescue team that helped save his life
It was all smiles at the University Heights Fire Department on Aug. 17, as Joshua Marshall met the heroes who teamed up with his wife to save his life earlier this summer. Marshall suffered a heart attack on June 2. His wife, Cathy Marshall (right), called 911, and Heights Hillcrest Communications Center (HHCC) dispatcher Lisa Sottosanti (left) coached her on performing CPR. Sottosanti’s coaching and Cathy’s performing of CPR saved Joshua’s life. Upon their arrival, members of the UH Fire Department assumed care of Marshall and provided advanced cardiac life support treatment. Marshall’s family, fire department staff, UH Mayor Michael Dylan Brennan and HHCC dispatch staff attended the Aug. 17 celebration.
