MySQL UC Attendee Helps Save Life

This morning Jay mentioned in the MySQL UC keynote introduction that Beat Vontobel had helped save a woman's life earlier this week.

Without getting a lot of detail the story is that Beat was outside on the sidewalk and witnessed this major accident out on the road. He dropped everything and ran to the car where he checked pulse and breathing and talked to the person as she regained conciousness while the emergency response was on the way. Once they arrived he helped by moving to the back seat of the car and holding the driver's neck straight so the emergency response person could perform checks without risking movement of the spine.

Man, that's remarkable.
