Town of Little Elm Honors Quick Actions by Parks Employees

By Jim Manning | Little Elm

LITTLE ELM, TX – The Town of Little Elm honored some Town employees for truly going above and beyond and representing Little Elm’s spirit. In February Syboua Phiavong collapsed at Little Elm Beach after suffering a cardiac arrest. Parks Maintenance employees saw him, administered chest compressions, and called 911. The Fire Department initiated advanced care and transported him to a local hospital. Without the efforts of this team, it’s likely Mr. Phiavong would not be here with us today.
