JUNEAU - Capital City Fire and Rescue in Juneau has awarded certificates of appreciation to three good Samaritans who came to the aid of a man stricken with a heart attack.
   
Gordon Mills, Mara Cisney and Paul Jennings helped save the life of 63-year-old Bryant Bearfield, a Home Depot employee who collapsed March 11 at the store.
   
Bearfield was answering questions about a lawnmower when he lost consciousness and fell backward, hitting his head on the concrete floor.
   
Mills, a member of the National Ski Patrol, began CPR. Cisney, another store employee and a volunteer firefighter, administered mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. They were assisted by Jennings, another volunteer firefighter.
   
Doctors told Bearfield's wife the rescuers' intervention kept oxygen flowing to Bearfield's brain.
