(Sequim) – A Clallam County sheriff's deputy is credited with saving a Sequim man's life.
Deputy Mark Millet responded to an “unresponsive male call” at the old Oyster House boat launch off Marine Drive in the Dungeness area about seven last night.
Millet found 67-year-old Darrel Brewer on the ground near the water being attended to by three men. Brewer appeared to have had a heart attack.
The men were attempting to perform CPR and Millet took over and was able to revive Brewer and medics were able to transport the man to Olympic Medical Center in serious, but stable condition. Brewer has had past medical problems and was previously scheduled for surgery.
The men were in the process of launching a boat for crabbing. Brewer was in chest waders and fell into the water. He was found face down in the water before the men were able to pull him to shore.
The men said they were happy to see Millet arrive, as they were unsure if they were correctly administering CPR.
