PASCO COUNTY, FL. – A Pasco County 911 caller who helped save a man’s life last month got the rare opportunity to meet him and his family in an emotional reunion Friday, December 10, 2021.
Jeff Hupp, of Zephyrhills, contacted the Pasco County Emergency Services Department to ask to personally thank 911 Caller Rob Lippmann for saving his life.
“This Thanksgiving is a special one,” says Hupp. “I had a lot to be grateful for. Not just Rob and Pasco EMS, but everything,” he said.
Lippmann was working in our 911 Media Center on November 3, 2021, when the call came in.
The caller told Lippmann her son-in-law was behaving strangely, and his eyes turned back to his head. Lippmann used calm, comforting statements to ensure that the family’s help was being worked on.
When the frantic caller told Lippmann that Hupp was no longer breathing, Lippmann immediately began CPR instruction, guiding the family through the scary moments and counting the number of chest compressions with them until the man medical officer arrives.
“It was an honor and very humbling for me,” Lippmann said of meeting Hupp. “I’m glad we got a positive result.”
Lippmann began serving as Pasco County Emergency Services Communications Director in 2018. Prior to that, he served as sheriff for more than 20 years.
