A West Sacramento woman received a “Hero” award from the Capital Region Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Raemarie Goin of West Sacramento and  Scott Sherwood, another employee of the Costco store in Woodland, were honored for coming to the aid of a customer who suffered a severe heart attack, said Vicki Faye, regional manager of the Red Cross chapter.

“Together, Raemarie and Scott began CPR and retrieved the Automated External Defibrillator, which they used four times. They were able to revive the customer until the fire department crews arrived,” Faye told the News-Ledger by email.

The pair were among the “local heroes” honored in a ceremony Dec. 7 in Davis.
