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.

Cyclist from Sacramento dies in West Sac


A Sacramento man died in a car-versus-bicycle accident this morning on West Capitol Avenue in West Sacramento.

According to Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department, both the cyclist from Sacramento and the car that struck him were going eastbound along the 2000-block of West Capitol when the collision occurred just after 7 a.m.

[adrotate group=”10″] “The initial investigation indicates both the vehicle and a bicyclist were traveling eastbound on West Capitol Avenue when the bicyclist swerved to miss a large puddle of water,” said Sockman in a press release.  “The bicyclist pulled into the number two lane of traffic in front of the vehicle just before the collision. Weather conditions were severe and may have been a contributing factor in the collision. The bicyclist, a 51 year old male from Sacramento, suffered major head trauma and was pronounced dead on scene. His identity is being withheld until his next of kin can be notified. The driver, a resident of West Sacramento, was not injured in the accident. Speed and or alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor in this accident.”
