TSA Agent, Passengers Revive Woman at Newark Airport

A Transportation Security Administration agent is being credited with helping save the life of a passenger at Newark Liberty International Airport.The TSA says security inspector Robert Kennish of Metuchen, N.J., performed CPR on an elderly woman after she collapsed Tuesday night on a passenger ramp and stopped breathing.

Flight attendants from the Virgin America aircraft and two passengers — an ophthalmologist and a nurse — also came to the woman’s aid.

The TSA says the doctor administered an automatic defibrillator an attendant retrieved from the jet, and Kennish resumed CPR. The woman was also given oxygen and was breathing when paramedics arrived.

TSA officials say the quick action by Kennish, a trained emergency medical technician, was likely responsible for saving the woman’s life. Kennish called it a group effort.
