On Friday, January 24, 2020, Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) personnel from Fire Station 156 held a recognition ceremony in honor of Valencia resident Shelby Stuckey.
Without a second thought, Stuckey initiated CPR in order to save a neighbor’s life.
On the morning of November 13, 2019, Stuckey was walking her dogs when she encountered a frantic woman and her child in need of assistance. Sensing something was wrong, Stuckey asked if they needed help. The woman took her into her house where her husband was laying on the kitchen floor.
Recognizing that he was in full cardiac arrest, she immediately began CPR until firefighters arrived to take over. Fortunately, they transported the patient to a local hospital where he has since made a full recovery.
