To Michael Sexton, they are a couple of angels who “did something amazing” when he collapsed at a local store.
The St. Charles Fire Department feels the same way, and during the City Council meeting on Monday. Aug. 19, 2013, presented Anne Romano and Cathy Deutscendorf with Citizen Awards for their lifesaving efforts on June 2, 2013, when Sexton suffered cardiac arrest.
Fire Chief Joe Schelstreet presented the awards to the two women, who, when they found Sexton in cardiac arrest, immediately began cardiopulmonary resuscitation until firefighters arrived.
Sexton, who was on hand for the award ceremony, thanks the two women and praised them for stepping up when other might not otherside do so.
“A proud and grateful city says thank you for a job well-done,” Mayor Raymond Rogina told the two women.
