Ok, this report has it wrong. The accident happened at 5:00pm Sunday night, and the driver was a 79 year old woman, not a man. I know because I was there, administering CPR to12 year old Joseph Johnston. I started CPR at 5:02 roughly and the paramedics arrived around 5:10. at about 6:10 he arrived at the hospital, where he was proclaimed dead at 7:15.


    To Thomas… thank you very much for your kindness by administering CPR to the 12 yr old boy Joey. It gives me hope that all is not lost when it comes to the goodness of our fellow person. You are a hero who did what he could to give Joey a fighting chance until paramedics could take over his treatment.
