Las Vegas (KSNV) — Las Vegas resident Zach Grogan has been awarded by the American Red Cross its National Lifesaving Award for his role in helping to save a victim of a heart attack.
Grogan is a stagehand supervisor for Henderson-based live event labor provider Rhino Nevada, and he administered chest compressions and rescue breathing to security guard Steve Bingham after he collapsed in the basement area of the MGM Resorts Park Theater following the Dec. 8 Jason Aldean show.
The compressions and breathing administered by Grogan, as well as an electric shock provided by an automated external defibrillator, brought Bingham back to consciousness before emergency personnel arrived and took over his care.
“Zach made us very proud by stepping up the way he did. His actions exemplified in an extraordinary way our core values of caring and professionalism. For the Red Cross to recognize him with this award is a tremendous honor for us and, on behalf of Zach, we gratefully thank them for that," said Jeff Giek, founder and CEO of Rhino Staging & Events Solutions, parent of Rhino Nevada.
Grogan will be awarded the honor via video conference on the morning of Oct. 15, 2020.
