FUKUOKA, Japan - Two courageous Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk banquet service team members were presented with a Life Saving Award on December 21, 2010 in the Fukuoka Central Fire Department.

The use of CPR and the knowledge of what actions to take were factors in saving a life in an incident at the hotel. Tatsuya Tomikawa and Takeshi Shimabukuro received their awards for performing CPR and applying an AED on a father of a groom who suffered cardiopulmonary arrest while he was preparing to attend his son's wedding ceremony.

The father's life was saved by those two courageous men and he is now in the hospital undergoing rehabilitation.

Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk has been actively going through First Aid Training, which includes CPR and AED, and it will continue to do so.
