Supervisor helps save man who received electric shock

        FOREST PARK — Fire officials credit a remodeling company supervisor with helping to save the life of an employee who received an electric shock Thursday while working on a home on Islandale Drive.

        Lawrence Mullett, 63, of Colerain Township, was taken by Forest Park life squad to Mercy Hospital Fairfield after the accident, and later taken by Air Care to University Hospital.

        Mr. Mullett was in critical condition at University on Thursday night.

        Fire Chief Trish Brooks said Mr. Mullett was on the ground moving a ladder when the ladder came in contact with live overhead wires, and he received an electric shock at about 11:15 a.m.

        When fire personnel arrived, Mr. Mullett's supervisor, Shawn Randolph, was administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation, Chief Brooks said. Mr. Randolph had called for help on a cell phone.

        Chief Brooks said that when they arrived, they began advanced cardiac life support. They started an IV, administered drugs and shocked him with a defibrillator.

        “We did bring him around,” Chief Brooks said. “But without (Mr. Randolph's), CPR we couldn't have done a whole lot for him.”

        Chief Brooks said it took about six to seven minutes for them to get a heartbeat, and that Mr. Randolph had probably done CPR for about six to eight minutes before they arrived.

        “We were very impressed with Shawn Randolph for doing such a good job,” the chief said. “This young man should be given the credit. If this gentleman makes it, it's because of Shawn.”
