As part of our preparation for the Big Day of Giving May 3, Access Sacramento is eager to report how our mascot, Big Fish Director, Quentin Sacramento ended up being in the right place at the right time.
At the conclusion of an afternoon visit to Sacramento’s The Academy gym Thursday, Quentin Sacramento stepped up to help a woman apparently suffering from a blocked airway.
Quentin applied a classic medical maneuver used to clear an airway obstruction known as a left flipper.
Witnesses at the scene say the young woman, identified as Christina Nicole Castro, was temporarily faint but quickly recovered and is now believed to be in fine health.
VIDEO of the scene is available HERE.
Quentin Sacramento is Access Sacramento’s longtime mascot. Just this month, he got his own twitter account and is expected to play a BIG role in Access Sacramento’s May 3 Big Day of Giving social media and donation campaign.
Access Sacramento, the community-supported non-profit television and radio station, would like to congratulate Quentin on his heroic action.
“Just as Quentin was there in that time of need, I hope our community will be there for Quentin as he spearheads our Big Day of Giving campaign,” said Gary Martin, Acces Sacramento executive director.
Quentin, a “Big Fish” director, has been with the organization since 2000. His most prominent role involves his work with the “A Place Called Sacramento” Film Festival, now in its 17th year.
Donations to the Access Sacramento BIG Day of Giving Page will be possible for 24 hours beginning midnight Tuesday, May 3.
