Barbara Glickstein interviews Tom Maimone, who shares his story. When Tom Maimone collapsed from cardiac arrest during a jog in Palm Beach, Florida, Tom Elowson came to the rescue, performing hands-only CPR to the tune of the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive,” as he had learned to do on the Today Show from Matt Lauer. Now the American Heart Association has a Hands-Only CPR Mobile Tour, where actress Jennifer Coolidge teaches people the technique of hands-on CPR performed to the beat of “Stayin’ Alive.” Tune in to Healthstyles at wxmrfm.com or wbai.org to hear our interview with Tom Maimone, or listen here.
