A good-hearted woman who stopped to save an older man’s life was brutally robbed of her iPad when she resuscitated him along a road in Perth.
Mother-of-three Latara Ogle saw a troubled woman trying to stop passing cars as she drove through Perth’s outer southern suburb of Warnbro on Wednesday.
She stopped and went to see what was going on and discovered that an older man had collapsed.
Latara Ogle immediately stopped when she saw a woman in need along a road along Perth and discovered that an older man had collapsed. She saved his life, but was robbed in the process
“He had stopped breathing … he had no pulse,” she said WA today.
The 30-year-old health sciences student immediately started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to revive the man.
In the heat of the moment, Mrs. Ogle asked a man standing nearby to go to her car and take a CPR mask from her car.
The man did not return, so she asked someone else to get it for her.
“I didn’t really think – it was quite a hectic scene,” she said.
She continued to work on the man and he started breathing again.
Frazzled she returned to her car and drove home.
Once she arrived, she realized her iPad was nowhere to be seen.
It had been in the passenger seat.
Latara Ogle said she thinks a man she asked to take a CPR mask from the glove compartment of her car stole her iPad. She just wants it back, without questions, because her photos are on it
Ms. Ogle suspects that the first man who never returned with her iPad left.
Unfortunately, she did not pay close attention to the man to remember what he looked like and could not describe his appearance.
“Honestly – I didn’t think anyone would do this,” she said.
The device contained her last thesis operations that were not backed up, along with precious photos of her children.
Ms. Ogle said her iPad was turned off and the thief was of no use.
She said she just wanted it back, no questions asked – and urged anyone who has it to contact a police station or the location.
The older man’s condition is unknown.
