Story 5

My son also saved my life

By Ivan and Otto Weizenegger

It’s the day of the school-leaving exams: Ivan Weizenegger (17) has to rush home during the lunch hour, he needs a file from his PC. When he gets there, he finds his father Otto (57) lying under his desk gasping — sudden cardiac arrest. Ivan reacts right away, calls the emergency doctor and uses all the techniques that he only just learned the week before in a first aid course.

His father Otto survives, with only one handicap: “I can’t remember anything at all from the whole week before it happened – not even the soccer World Cup final where Germany beat Brazil 7 to 1.” He’s happy and proud that Ivan is not just his son but also his lifesaver.
