On March 1st 2019 at approximately 6:00pm, Sergeant Jeremy White located a man on Grey Road 3 in Ayton who was in a pick-up truck and had no vital signs. Sgt. White began performing CPR on the male and called for assistance. West Grey Fire Fighters along with Grey County Paramedics were quick to arrive and assist Sgt. White in resuscitating the man. After hard work and team effort, James Wilmer survived what was later diagnosed to have been a heart attack.

This week, Grey County paramedic Melissa Kaufman and police Sergeant Jeremy White were recognized for their live saving actions. They were both presented with awards for saving the life of James Wilmer. Great work by all of the first responders including the fast response of the firefighters.
