Entry Description

Indianapolis, IN- An Indianapolis man is expected to survive a heart attack that contributed to a property damage crash after an alert state trooper performed CPR until emergency medical assistance arrived.

Early afternoon, March 26th, at approximately 12:00 p.m., Indiana State Police Sergeant Pornteb Nathalang, of the Enforcement Division, came upon a property damage crash on I-65 near the 111.8 mm. While assessing the crash of the 2009 Chevrolet work van, Sgt. Nathalang realized the driver, Benjamin Lindley, 48, of Indianapolis, was in full cardiac arrest. Sgt. Nathalang removed Lindley from his vehicle and performed CPR until relieved by the Indianapolis Fire Department emergency medical personnel. Lindley was transported to Methodist Hospital and is expected to survive.

Crash investigators learned that Lindley was speaking with his fiancée on the phone and complained that he felt ill. While the vehicle was still in motion Lindley lost consciousness and drove into the side of a semi-tractor trailer and the vehicles came to a stop. The driver of the semi-tractor trailer was not injured.

Mr. Lindley’s survival is attributed to the CPR and medical procedures administered by Sgt. Nathalang and emergency medical personnel of the Indianapolis Fire Department.

Nathalang is a 28-year veteran and is the Indiana State Police Motorcycle Patrol North Zone Sergeant.
