Co-workers help to save a life


“That day was totally lost to me,” says Michael Baduns, 52, who collapsed at Napa Auto Parts where he was working on Sept. 14. “People tell me now that I was going to go on a delivery for a customer. I am told that I screamed. A co-worker said it sounded like a bunch of fighting cats.”

By the time Badun’s co-workers, David Ward, a volunteer firefighter, and Goldendale City Council member Andy Halm got to him, he was unconscious. “I was upstairs and I heard a yell,” says Halm. “I was shocked when I came downstairs and saw Michael on the floor.” Ward called 911 while Halm turned Baduns on his side. “They took care of me and called the rescue squad,” says Baduns.
