Hero SEPTA workers save co-worker's life in Delaware County

COLLINGDALE, Pa. (WPVI) -- A SEPTA worker collapsed on the job Tuesday, but rather than freeze in fear, his co-workers pitched in to save his life.

The incident happened at the SEPTA trolley stop at Woodlawn and Bartram Avenues in Collingdale.

Collingdale police officers and paramedics arrived to find three SEPTA workers performing CPR on John Thompson.

"Right place at the right time, happened to know what's going on," highway foreman John Moors told Action News. "I didn't do anything myself. It was definitely one great big group effort."

The Collingdale police chief said the SEPTA workers likely saved Thompson's life.

Thompson's family says he suffered a heart attack and is hospitalized in critical but stable condition.
