A trainer at a Warrenville gym who authorities say helped save a man's life was honored this week by the Warrenville Fire Protection District.

J.P. Maund, who works at Life Time Fitness at Diehl and Winfield roads in Warrenville, is credited with helping resuscitate a 59-year-old man who went into cardiac arrest at 4:55 p.m. Dec. 4.

Firefighters said Maund used an automatic external defibrillator to shock the man and restart his heart, while two others at the gym -- Sabrina Zubair and Craig Cooper -- delivered chest compressions and helped the man with breathing.

Paramedics were at the patient's side six minutes after receiving the call, but Maund and the others acted before emergency responders arrived. The patient was taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville, where he stayed for several days before making a full recovery, Warrenville fire officials said.

Maund was given the fire protection district's Lifesaving Award during its regular meeting Wednesday night. Zubair and Cooper were unable to attend the ceremony.

"The members of the fire and emergency services are indebted to citizens like J.P. who bravely act in moments of crisis," Warrenville Fire Chief Dennis Rogers said in a written statement.
