It is belatedly known that he learned CPR as a CPR experience equipment set up at Dunsan Fire Station and contributed to the resuscitation of cardiac arrest patients.

The main character is Park Han-jong, a station employee working at Daejeon Metro City Hall Station.

He found an elderly man who collapsed with a cardiac arrest in the waiting room of City Hall Station on February 5 and provided CPR with all his might until 119 paramedics arrived.

After five minutes of first aid, an ambulance arrived and transported him to a hospital, and the patient's heart miraculously began to beat again in the ambulance.

It proved that the importance of early first aid is that great. The patient died in hospital, unfortunately, but the station staff was very quick and perfect.

This means that the effect of one CPR experience equipment is that big. Park Han-jong, a station employee, reportedly inspected and practiced the experience equipment every day during the station patrol.

He also proposed the idea of ‘creating an urban railway safety experience center’ that can use free space in urban railway history to hold safety cultural events, including cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and will be introduced soon. According to an official of the urban railway, he is usually very interested to spread the civil safety culture.

Dunsan Fire Station has been operating a CPR experience equipment at Daejeon City Hall Station since May last year so that people can see and experience safety education for themselves due to the spread of COVID-19.

It is no exaggeration to say that the CPR experience equipment, which uses an average of about 30 people a day, is becoming a safety guard for Daejeon citizens.

An official from the fire department said, "This case proved once again the 'four-minute miracle' of the importance of early first aid. We will try to provide fire safety services in more various ways to prevent gaps in civil safety."
