Woman seeks off duty Paramedic who saved her life

Clarkston, MI

It has been just over a year when Terri Elliot was having dinner with her ex-husband. Terri had a cardiac arrest and was assisted by an off duty female paramedic. Now Terri wants to find the paramedic who saved her life.

“She went towards the wall at first, and that’s when I noticed something wasn’t right,” said server Danielle Rafferty.

It certainly was not. Rafferty witnessed one of her customers collapse at Clarkston’s Capre Grill.

Luckily, a female paramedic was sitting directly behind them. She was having dinner with her family. When she saw what happened, they say she sprang into action.

“She just got right up, and… she knew right away what to do, the CPR and everything. She was telling her husband, okay, do this,” Rafferty said.
