On 27 November 2013, the day before Thanksgiving, cardiologist Amir Siadatan revived a five-year-old boy who was pulled unconscious from the deep end of a swimming pool at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne, Florida. He said, “Bringing a five-year-old back, it’s an amazing feeling.” He told the people present, “This is what I do for a living,” and then he performed CPR on the boy. Dr. Siadatan said, “Thank God he turned around within two minutes.” He added, “I don’t want to take anything for this, I did what I had to do. Thank God I was there, I mean this is just pure luck that I was there.” The boy, who was alert when paramedics arrived, was taken to Miami Children’s Hospital. Marcos Osorio, deputy chief with the Key Biscayne Fire Department, said, “If it wasn’t for his quick action and responsibility to take action, we probably would’ve been standing here with a different circumstance.” Dr. Siadatan said, “It is a feeling that nothing can replace. It’s just like, you know, I did something right today, for this week, or this month — nothing replaces this.”
