Quick Action May Have Saved a Life

In early May, Alain Fillion, Superintendent at Roberval-Saguenay, choked while eating his meal in the dining room of building 1004. Quick thinking by his colleague Daniel Godin may have saved his life.

Ann Audy, Manager at Roberval-Saguenay, said, “When Daniel saw that his colleague was choking, he took immediate action and performed the Heimlich manoeuvre. He remained very calm. His action quickly dislodged the food that was blocking Alain’s airway. If it weren’t for Daniel’s intervention, the worst could have happened.”

Daniel is a very humble person,” Audy added. “To him, his response was completely natural, and anyone would have done the same. But we know that there is something heroic about it. He may have saved a life.”

The organisation shared this story with all Roberval-Saguenay workers to acknowledge the exceptional nature of Godin’s actions. An Inspiration card was also presented to him for his valiant rescue.
