ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — A St. John Fisher College athletics trainer was honored for his life-saving actions Tuesday.

James Grant was on duty at a football game in Hartwick back in October when an official collapsed.


Grant immediately began performing CPR on the official, and he also fixed a malfunctioning AED device and attached it to the man.

Grant told News10NBC the official is now back at work.

"He's doing well,” Grant said. “I saw him a few weeks ago at one of our games here. He was in a different role at that time. But he was feeling well and he was obviously very appreciative and thankful."

Brighton and Pittsford emergency personnel were among those who honored Grant.
