Off-duty firefighter helps revive 'clinically dead man' on golf course
Manchester Township Firefighter Mike Riesterer helped bring a Northville man back to life at a Lyon Township golf course last week, the Observer and Eccentric reported.
“He was clinically dead,” Riesterer told the paper about Richard Wilkins, the 65-year-old man who collapsed as he was taking a last putt at the Tanglewood Golf Course on 10 Mile in Lyon Township June 27. “He definitely wasn’t breathing."
Riesterer just happened to be golfing at the same course with a number of other current or retired first responders. They helped Wilkins until Lyon Township fire crews and on-duty paramedics arrived, according to the report.
