Five Metro-North employees were honored Monday for their quick action and life-saving efforts when a fellow employee collapsed at the Croton-Harmon shop where they all work.
"They did a yeoman's job saving my life," said Robert DeStefano, who is recovering at home.
DeStefano, an electrician who works in shop maintenance, collapsed last May 26 while walking to the parking lot. His co-workers, John Fisher and Ray Castrovinci, saw the man collapse and immediately realized that he was not breathing and had no pulse. John called for help and Ray began CPR.
