My Angels


Fond du Lac paramedics and firefighters got a chance to meet a 52-year-old Fond du Lac woman Friday morning who wanted to thank them for saving her life. Cheryl Zivkovich had already written a letter to Fire Chief Peter O’Leary to thank those responsible for reviving her when she suffered a heart attack on February 17th. The paramedics were called in that day while other crews responded to a house fire. Paramedic Matt Simon had been working for the fire department for a couple months. Cheryl wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse. He was doing chest compressions when she came around and yelled at him. Cheryl says she thought at first she was suffering from heart burn then realized it was more serious. She calls the paramedics and fire crew who save her life “My Angels.” Cheryl was taken to St. Agnes Hospital where she was treated and eventually released. She says everything that could have gone right that day did and that’s why she is around to tell the tale.
