Man Dies Performing CPR On Wife, Who Died Too

A 61-year-old man who called 911 to report that his wife had a heart attack apparently died while trying to perform CPR to save her life, authorities said. His wife died too.

His wife also died, Clallam County Sheriff's Sgt. Nick Turner told AOL News. The couple's names were released today, identified as Charles Lorme and his wife, Geraldine, 59, from the town of Joyce, on the Olympic Peninsula in
Washington, Turner said.

"We have no indication of foul play," Turner said. Lorme called 911 at about 9:45 p.m. Wednesday and told the dispatcher that his wife had collapsed and wasn't breathing, adding that he was going to start CPR, the sheriff's department said. The line then went silent.

The man was found slumped over his wife's body when paramedics and sheriff's deputies arrived at the home about eight minutes later, Sheriff's Sgt. John Keegan told the
Upper Peninsula Daily News.
"Usually, events like this don't happen in pairs," Keegan told the newspaper.

Rescuers -- who had to break into the home -- found the couple on the floor and performed CPR for about 40 minutes without success,
The Seattle Times reported. Leonard Pierce, owner of Joyce General Store, told the Times the couple had just moved to Joyce and built a home.

"It's terrible," he said.
