Jim Jones learned CPR when he was 12 because his little sister was born with a heart condition and the whole family needed that skill just in case.
That skill ended up saving his photographer Jerry Fleet's life.
Jones and Fleet gave an interview with Inside Edition in which they described what happened in Florida during a Crypto conference last month.
“I actually was on a phone call. I can remember my partner Doug screaming my name to turn around. I just saw Flee sitting, just going through something that didn’t seem good like he was choking and he couldn’t breathe, and his eyes was going back in his head, and he was catching a bit of a seizure. I actually didn’t know what was going on. Kind of scared me," Jones said.
He sprung right into action and started giving Fleet chest compressions, which woke him up.
“I didn’t know what was going on at the moment,” Fleet said.. “I guess everything happened so fast. But I had an out-of-body experience Like, I felt like I was telling myself to come back to myself. Then I just, I guess when I snapped out of it, Jim was giving me chest compressions. The first person I woke up to was just Jim. He was holding me, like I was sitting down. It happened while I was sitting down, so Jim was over me, hugging over me, I guess giving me chest compressions. That’s how I started breathing.”
