A Michigan State Police trooper and a local firefighter assisted local construction workers in reviving a worker who nearly died from an electrical shock at the failed Edenville Dam site. About 1:25 p.m. on Wednesday, May 27, Trooper Christopher Kustra of the Tri-City Post responded to a call at the Wixom Lake Dike of a man unresponsive after having suffered an electrical shock. When Kustra arrived, he saw CPR was being performed on the unresponsive man. After confirming the man was not breathing and did not have a pulse, Kustra deployed his automatic external defibrillator (AED) and administered an electric shock. Following use of the AED, the unresponsive man’s heart resumed beating and he began breathing on his own.
