BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Working as a team, three Port Canaveral employees helped to save the life of a man who collapsed after disembarking Royal Caribbean International’s Harmony of the Seas on Sunday morning.
“At 7 a.m., the man collapsed in the parking garage of Cruise Terminal 1 when the team of Cruise Operations Associates sprang into action,” said Port officials.
Port Canaveral officials said each one took on a different role to help save his life, including Sean Summers, who called 9-1-1; Josh Clayton ran to get a portable defibrillator; and Stephanie Dobson stayed with the man and monitored his condition until the ambulance arrived.
Other passengers, a nurse and a doctor, performed CPR until Canaveral Fire Rescue and Brevard County Sheriff’s Office personnel arrived moments later.
“Kudos to everyone involved,” said Port officials. “Our best wishes to the passenger with his recovery.”
