>Enterprise Sailors Save Turkish Man’s Life (UPDATED)

>Four Sailors from Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 11, saved a Turkish man’s life by administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) while on liberty in Marmaris, Turkey, from deployed aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. 

Aviation Electrician’s Mate 2nd Class (AW) Christopher Hockey, Aviation Machinist’s Mate 3rd Class Jacob Kudrin, Aviation Machinist’s Mate Airman Brian Jones, and Aviation Structural Mechanic Airman Brandon Plummer were on their way back to the ship after spending the day in town when they witnessed a man fall, hitting his head and slumping to the ground, unconscious.

When the four Sailors checked for the man’s pulse and found none, they told nearby pedestrians to call for help. Hockey began to administer CPR while the other three Sailors assisted. When police and medical personnel arrived, the Sailors’ efforts successfully revived the injured man.

The man was rushed to the hospital for further treatment.

    >Greetings,Came across your blog whilst serching for news on the hijacked MV Leopard. Was wondering if you could help with some Turkish naval information i'm searching for. Here goes – a few years ago a batch of Royal Malaysian Navy personnel were sent to the Golcuk naval base for sub training. To complete their training they served on board a Turkish Type 209 during a routine patrol in the Black Sea. Would it be possible to find out what the name of this Type 209 was? Regards – Fariz.
