The Philadelphia Inquirer
BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. — Last month, a Bucks County 911 dispatcher saved the lives of an 80-year-old Bensalem woman and an 18-year-old Bensalem man in separate instances. In September, the same dispatcher saved a Solebury patient who, like the other two, had stopped breathing.
The dispatcher, Stanley Niedzwiki, saved the three lives by coaching callers over the phone to administer CPR until help arrived.
