We will be reporting on lives saved around the world since our first documented life saved here in Singapore.

The couple usually goes to Highland Mall most morning at 10 a.m., as the mall is opening, 68-year-old Dixie Mix said. On Nov. 3, she and her husband were walking inside the mall when she went ahead to do a lap by herself. Paul Mix stayed behind to take his medicine. When she approached the Aeropostale store, where she’d left him, she’d noticed that he wasn’t there.


A store employee saw Paul fall, Dixie Mix said. “By the time I got back to him, his heart and lungs were still working, but he just said, ‘I need down,’ and collapsed,” she said.

Mall security Captain Criselda Ozuna and security officer Jamael Jackson rushed to the couple’s side. Ozuna performed CPR and Jackson helped with the defibrillator, Dixie Mix said. By the time paramedics arrived, officials said, mall employees had done much of the work of reviving Mix.

It was wonderful to have so many people who cared so much. You always hear about the bad an I was tickled to death this is the good,” said Dixie Mix, wife.

“You have to ask yourself, ‘What is my next heartbeat worth?’,” Rodriguez said. “This is a perfect example of a business who decided that well in advance.”

Everyone involved with saving Mix’s life reunited Wednesday along with a ceremony to honor the four Highland Mall employees for their life saving efforts. Those honored include security officers Jamael Jackson and Criselda Ozuna, along with mall housekeeping employees Carlos Ignacio and Fidel Salazar.
