Cogswell – life saved

48-year-old Denise Cogswell went into cardiac arrest early Thanksgiving morning in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Her husband, T.J. Cogswell, and son Derek Brockney stayed on the phone with 911 dispatcher Steve Harris, who told them how to perform CPR until emergency crew arrived. The call lasted for eight minutes, as Harris guided Cogswell and Brockney through CPR. When emergency workers arrived, they saved Cogswell’s life. Her heart stopped twice as crews worked to save her. She was taken to Huggins Hospital and then transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. She now has a defibrillator in her chest. On Thursday, she met with her rescuers for the first time since her accident and said she is extremely thankful.
