Keep going,' " Szuber said. After the initial compressions from Plagens, Colucci decided to cut Fischer's jersey and pads. "I didn't think we were getting good enough compression because he was going through pads that are pretty thick," Colucci said. Fischer was hardly responding. "He had some agonal breathing (barely able to breathe)," Colucci said. "He had his mouthguard still on.
