‘Bystander CPR' helps save Mustang woman

Martha Rhodes, foreground, was in the gymnasium of Chisholm Heights Baptist Church in Mustang last fall when she slumped over, limp and lifeless. The church's associate pastor Scott Badgett, left, rushed to her side and began administering chest compressions and CPR. Within minutes after receiving a 911 call, EMSA paramedic Kim Maze, right, responded with another paramedic and Mustang firefighters who took over the efforts begun by Badgett. She was stabilized and taken to a local hospital where she was treated and is now back at work as the preschool coordinator at the church. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
