On Wednesday evening in Catania, Italy, a 63-year-old Italian citizen driving his van had a heart attack while heading home. He veered into oncoming traffic on Via Dusmet and collided with another vehicle, crashing into a concrete arch at the marina. Luckily, a finance officer from the local command happened to be passing by and immediately intervened, extracting the man from the vehicle and providing initial care. A passerby alerted a patrol of the financial police in service nearby, who arrived to assist and began performing CPR. They also called for an ambulance from the rescue service. Just before the ambulance arrived, the man’s initially unconscious and cyanotic heart started beating again due to the continuous and uninterrupted resuscitation efforts by the military. He was then transported to the nearest hospital for urgent lifesaving surgery, likely to clear the coronary obstruction that caused his cardiac arrest.
