— Three area residents performed CPR on a Kenosha man who collapsed after the Rock River Thresheree on Monday night.

Paul Anderson, 57, Milton; Miles Jackson, 50, Janesville, and Lynnette Millard, 47, Janesville, performed CPR on Dave Jucius, 55, until sheriff's deputies arrived.


Jucius was in serious condition Tuesday at University Hospital, Madison.


Sheriff's deputies, an officer from the Town of Fulton Police Department and rescue personnel from the Edgerton Fire Department were dispatched to Thresherman's Park, 51 E. Cox Road, at 6:54 p.m. for a report of a man down, according to a sheriff's office press release.


Jucius was a vendor at the annual Thresheree. He was packing his belongings before he was found lying on the ground unresponsive and blue. He had no pulse and was not breathing, according to the press release.


When deputies arrived, they and the Fulton officer took over chest compressions and set up an automatic external defibrillator. After two shocks from the machine, Jucius was turned over to EMS personnel and transported to Edgerton Hospital, where he reportedly was conscious and alert, according to the press release.


Jucius later was transferred to University Hospital, Madison.
