Pizza Hut Worker Saves Man's Life

Posted: Updated:

A Pizza Hut waitress is being hailed a hero after she helps save the life of a customer whose heart stopped beating.

 It happened on February 24th at A Pizza Hut in Kendallville, Indiana.

Heather Bateman was waiting tables when she saw an elderly man passed out.

Turns out, Bateman used to be an emergency medical technician, so her medical instincts kicked in.

Bateman noticed the elderly man, Carl Weathers, had no pulse. She moved him to the floor and began CPR and chest compression.

"I really appreciate Heather and her manager to help me out that just shows you, the first responders are out there, and they do help you. You never know when something like that will happen," said Weathers

"It's always an amazing feeling.  My adrenaline was obviously still pumping at the time.  But I don't call myself a hero.  I like to help people," explains Bateman.

 Weather says he hopes to visit the pizza place soon to thank Bateman in person.
