When a 24-year-old with a heart condition went into cardiac arrest and collapsed last week, an MBTA worker who knows CPR kept him going until an ambulance could arrive to get him to the hospital.
The T says that Kevin Bossart collapsed, fell down the stairs and struck his head. Station Customer Service Agent Karen Kane rushed to get a co-worker, Tomas Gonzales, who began performing CPR. Gonzales, an MBTA training instructor, doesn't normally work at Wollaston, but was there to help out with issues related to the cold weather.
Bossart's family went to Wollaston today, to thank the T workers:
