Bill Dowding stopped at Homeland on 24th and Robinson last week to pick up some last minute dinner items for his wife when he saw a man fall to the ground. Mr. Dowding’s instincts kicked in and he rushed over to help the man by administering CPR until EMSStat paramedics arrived. Mr. Dowding didn’t know the man he was keeping alive was former Cleveland County District Attorney and Judge Preston Trimble. The two were reunited last week in the Cardiac Care Unit of Norman Regional Hospital in front of family, friends and the media.
