A Sheldahl man who suffered cardiac arrest and survived is now going to help others in need.

Clint Bennethum was hunting in October, 2009 when he began to feel chest pains. As he approached the Norwalk exit on Interstate 35 he called 911.

Paramedic Jennifer Vetterick responded and administered CPR until they arrived at the hospital.

After doctor’s put in a stint, Bennethum made a full recovery. Now Bennethum is taking emergency medical technician classes.

As part of his training he will do a ride along with his rescuer, Jennifer coming up this Friday.
