Bruins Fan Dies During a Hockey Game And Opposing Player Saves His Life

In an incredible story for Slate magazine, Peter Jakubowicz recounts his near-death experience during a hockey game. Against all odds, he was saved by a rival player. Peter woke up in the ICU at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, where he learned the astonishing truth: "You had a heart attack during your hockey game. A player on the other team saved your life."

Peter witnessed the incident on video playback and saw player No. 12 from the opposing team checking his pulse just 25 seconds after his collapse. No. 12 quickly performed CPR with remarkable precision while a man in civilian clothes joined in to help.

After a challenging recovery journey, Peter returned to the hockey arena where he met his heroes: No. 12, known as Steve, a paramedic with three decades of experience, and Derek, a former EMT. Peter, a devoted Boston Bruins fan, took comfort in wearing No. 37 during the incident, reminiscent of the legendary Patrice Bergeron.

Despite the Bruins' unexpected elimination from the playoffs, Peter's heart remains full of gratitude for the gift of life.
