It was reported that the flight was 15m from landing. Have not looked but i bet ATC and the Pilot were given a fast approach to land. Maybe shaving while landing is not a good idea. Or its just the minute s/he took to review the situation was better to continue CPR then take time to shave his chest while the plane was landing.

It reported that he was shaved and he was zapped. Maybe s/he was waiting till the plane was slowing on the runway and in taxi to do it.

How do you know she didn't shave him? Because the (understandably) grieving widow said she didn't?

In fairness, shouldn't we all wait until a full investigation is completed?

As an FYI, one can also stick the pads, rip the hair off, and reapply new pads (if available). The pads should have been placed ASAP to check the rhythm, but it is possible the man could have been in an unshockable rhythm in which case CPR would have been the only viable option anyway.

I agree with Jkgourmet. I think there is more to this story and we are only hearing one side.

Maybe you went to CPR training? Either that, or you didn't listen well. This IS a major issue for utilizing AED.
