An automated external defibrillator (AED) has been donated to Family Transition Place (FTP).
The Chase McEachern AED Memorial Fund made the donation to the women’s shelter on Wednesday (Oct. 10) in memory of Victoria Selby-Readman. The 26-year-old from Caledon is Chase’s cousin.
She posted an ad looking for a roommate in Toronto last June. A man answered the ad and police allege he killed Selby-Readman three weeks later.
Forty-one year-old Richard Isaac of Brampton has been charged with second degree murder.
Chase McEachern lived in Barrie and was diagnosed with a heart condition known as atrial flutter. The athlete advocated for AEDs to be mandatory in arenas and schools.
Unfortunately, McEachern wouldn’t get to see his goal come to reality. He collapsed during gym class in 2006 and died a few days later.
