1049 Electric Craft Members Assist At Accident Scene
Apr 06, 2023

On 4/4/2023 at around 7:40 a.m.  Kenny Lapenna, Jared Storoshenko (Shop Steward) and apprentices Dan Hecht and Kyle Levantino were eating breakfast at Pantano’s Eatery on South Oyster Bay Rd. in Plainview. Kyle and Dan got their breakfast and walked out to their parked trucks in the lot. Dan and Kyle heard a motorcycle heading North on S. Oyster Bay Rd. and a loud crash. They saw the motorcyclist on the ground. Kyle immediately called Kenny to let him know there was a bad accident out front. Kenny and Jared ran out of Pantano’s and saw people standing over the rider.  It was at this point that their Safety and CPR/First Aid Training kicked in and they sprung into action. Kenny and Jared immediately started to assess the motorcyclist as Dan and Kyle made the area safe. The rider was unresponsive. They checked the rider’s pulse, and it was faint. Jared started CPR doing compressions and Kenny was giving breaths while Dan was holding the riders head until EMTs arrived. The EMTs took over all CPR and transported the injured motorcyclist to a nearby hospital. Kenny, Jared, Kyle, and Dan performed a heroic act by taking action and administering CPR to the motorcyclist.

Unfortunately, the motorcyclist did not survive in the hospital later that day. However, the members were able to give him a chance by keeping him alive with a pulse when he arrived at the hospital.
