FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) – A new recruit with the Fishers Fire and Emergency Service performed CPR off duty Sunday.

Officials say Jordan McClellan was working out at the YMCA when he heard someone shout for help. That is when he spotted a man on the ground in cardiac arrest.

McClellan used a defibrillator at the YMCA and CPR to help the man regain a heartbeat. The patient was then transported to the Indiana Heart Hospital.

Officials say MClellan has been a paramedic since 2010 but is just beginning class with Fishers. He is one of 14 new firefighters that started with the department earlier this week.

Fishers is offering a CPR class for residents at the Delaware Township Community Building on Feb. 11. Click here for more information on that event.
