Saved by a stranger: Hastings man is alive thanks to nurse’s actions
Gene Mann doesn’t remember Oct. 31, but he’ll never forget what happened that day. It was the day he almost died.
Mann, a Hastings resident, was driving a semi-trailer down Vermillion Street early in the morning when he went into cardiac arrest. Behind him, Dan Pfeffer of Welch was driving his pickup and noticed that the semi had its turn signal on for the Con Agra mill, but drove past both driveways.
