A man is in an Edmond hospital after suffering a medical event prior to the start of Tuesday’s Guthrie High School district softball game.

Just prior to the first pitch between Guthrie and Duncan, a man collapsed near the concession stand. Immediately, many came to the man’s rescue, including a nurse and a Logan County deputy.

The deputy immediately dispatched an ambulance while the nurse and parents began rendering aid, including CPR. Also on the site of the softball complex was an AED (automated external defibrillator).

The patient was transported by Guthrie EMS to an Edmond hospital where they arrived at 5:34 p.m.

A family member says they are thankful to the school district and those who rendered aid.

“Thank you for all the prayers,” they said. “Thank you to all the quick-acting people that performed CPR. (Also) thankful Guthrie Public Schools had an AED available.”

The latest report is the man’s blood pressure is normal and heart rate is good.

The family says they continue to stand by and wait for test results to come in.

The game will be rescheduled for another date.
