A guy having a heart attack was reportedly rescued by Florida’s surgeon general, Joseph Ladapo. During a function in the Florida State Capitol, Ladapo, a high-ranking official of Governor Ron DeSantis’ administration, heard a noise. He and two physicians raced to the aid of a guy who had collapsed in his chair. The man was laid out on the ground, but no one could detect a heartbeat. They started CPR on him and then used a defibrillator pad on his chest. Thankfully, after being stunned, the man came to again.
After being brought to the hospital, the man’s condition has been steadily improving. “The choice to help me was made by a total stranger, and it saved my life. The mystery guy responded, “I think he already has his wings.” The Nigerian with a Harvard education paid the survivor a visit thereafter, and he was quite gracious. Every other week, Ladapo sees patients at a local hospital to keep his medical skills sharp. He responded, “I enjoy being a doctor.”
Ladapo has emerged as a vocal supporter of DeSantis on issues related to public health over the past few years. He has often defied mainstream thinking on controversial topics, including the COVID-19 vaccine. For instance, the Florida Surgeon General has spoken in favor of antibody treatment over-vaccination. He believes that people should have the freedom to make informed decisions about their own health.
