An elderly poll worker at the Eureka precinct stopped breathing on Election Day.
“I’m just grateful that we got her back and got her OK,” said Eddie Smith, who served as the officer of elections at the precinct on Tuesday.
Smith said he and another worker at the precinct, Regina Durham, performed CPR on Phyllis Gutowski after she stopped breathing.
“They saved me,” Gutowski said.
The Eureka precinct is located at Asbury Chapel United Methodist Church. The incident happened around 1:30 p.m.
