Firefighters came to the rescue of a runner who went into cardiac arrest during a road race on Friday in Narragansett.
Runners took their mark for the 10 mile run at the annual Blessing of the Fleet Road Race in Narragansett.
Firefighters, medics, and law enforcement lined the route of the race in case of an emergency -- and last night they were needed.
"They break the race down into different zones, I was in zone three which is one down Ocean Road and right around the mile three marker we noticed some commotion -- people yelling for help and waving," said Narragansett firefighter Christopher Dubowski.
Crews said a man from Massachusetts in his early thirties was running the race and went into cardiac arrest.
Dubowski, who was first on the scene, said he snapped into medic mode.
